Eight locals competed in the Port 2 Pub swimming event under the tongue-in-cheek name Dunsborough Needs A Pool.

Dunsborough-based swimming instructor and team member Maritia Lightfoot said the event was a blast, and the quirky name drew a strong reaction.

“We got so much response from our team shirts at the Rotto pub,” she said.

“Lots of people just couldn’t believe we didn’t have a pool, and people from all over the State and even interstate commenting on our shirts.”

The team placed third in the female veterans category.

“We all loved the event, it was heaps of fun and really well organised,” Lightfoot said.
