Please help us Swim to Colombia!

Dear friends of Y natural,

Barbara here! At Y natural, we are working together to support our extraordinarily talented friend and colleague Charlotte Jordans with her campaign to compete in the World Cup for Underwater Rugby, being held in Colombia in late July / early August.

Underwater Rugby is a relatively new sport in Australia and this will be the first time the team has competed in the World Games. While this makes the trip extremely important and exciting, it also means that the team doesn’t have extensive network of resources to draw upon. So what we’re all doing together to help the team is really REALLY important.

It’s getting close now and we’ve done a few fun things, including our fabulous gathering at the Grand last Friday, however there’s one part of our sponsorship arrangement that continues – and continues to challenge me personally.

I am swimming 30km as part of a group effort of swimmers across Australia to “Swim to Colombia”.

We’re asking our fabulous friends of Y natural to sponsor my swim for just $1 or $2 per kilometre, for a total of $30 or $60.

Please do! And please join us in following the campaign and cheering along Charlotte and our Australian team.

Every contribution makes a big difference and is very much appreciated. We’ll have photos and news, and promise to keep sponsors informed about what’s happening at the games. And when the games are finished, we will host a celebratory BBQ after Charlotte’s return, EXCLUSIVE for our sponsors – you can meet Charlotte and hear all about the trip. This will probably be once Spring hits and the weather is a tad warmer. We will also find other ways to extend our thanks when we have the chance to catch up with our country or interstate sponsors.

There are several ways you can make a donation:

  • In person at Y natural, 35 Pier St, Glenelg, by cash or credit card.
  • By EFT to Y natural BSB 035-006, Acct 208785. Please indicate ‘Sponsorship’ in the transaction description.
  • By telephone during working hours: 08 8294 1167.
  • By our online shop here.


BTW If you like the idea of collaborating with us to support the campaign to a greater level, please feel welcome to drop me a line, because we are collaborating in many different ways to make this trip become a reality! Just drop me a line via fb, our Y natural fb page or email me here: or

With our heartfelt thanks and best wishes,

Barbara xx
