What was slightly distressing was the lack of beach at Portsea. Bay dredging or natural tidal movement?
I've done the Portsea swim for the last 9 years and the last 2 instead of being near the pier has been from the Pt Nepean end
of the beach by the pier (500 mts away), down to the quarantine station. This is because of the lack of beach in front of the pub.
3 years ago (2010) when you came out of the water it was rock underneath not sand .
The people who authorised the dredging say it is a natural occurance but it only started to happen after the dredging
