This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

The 2019 edition will be a point to point swim starting in the harbour of Charlestown and finishing on the beach in the harbour of Polkerris.

The route will take you across St Austell Bay from east to west passing all the Carlyon Bay beaches plus Spit and Par before finishing at Polkerris.

Hopefully, you'll be rewarded with a clear flat calm turquoise sea and lots of ocean wildlife en route. And as always a massive swim-five from the Mad Hatter crew at the finish will await every competitor from 1st to last. What's not to like?

Each competitor will receive a coloured swim hat and a special commemorative medal. Male and female prizes for overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd and AG winners.

Registration will take place at Polkerris and we will transport you to the start unless you have your own transport with family/friends. You will only be able to take that which you need on the transport so please plan on what you need to take and what you will leave in the baggage store at Polkerris.
