Challenger Swim – This wave is not a race and is open to any swimmer who would like to challenge themselves with this iconic swim. This can be swum as either a ‘skins’ or a wetsuit swimmer. There will be no prize for this swim.
(Over 18’s only)

Due to the tide times you can only enter one wave per swimmer.

Under 18s must belong to a swimming club to take part in the Junior Swim (details must be added to the application form when booking) and accompanied by a legal guardian on the day.


We are excited about opening up the swim to non competitive swimmers for the challenger swim, but as this is traditionally a swimming race we will still be handing out the below trophies to the winners of the other waves.

As we are doing a staggered start this year (to be covid compliant) it will be the fastest recorded swimmer who wins the below and not the first over the line.
