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.

What’s Included
Each competitor will be given a token at registration for a FREE hot drink from Polkerris Beach Company.
Raceday Logistics
We will be supplying a FREE coach journey from Polkerris
to Charlestown for the start of the swim. This service is for
competitors only and is a ONE WAY journey so please make
sure nothing is left on the coach as it will not return to Polkerris.

There will be a final check-in process just before you go
down to the beach for final swim attendance numbers.
ALL competitors must check-in and attend the race briefing
on the beach as this will contain essential information.
We will collect any shoes left at Charlestown and transport
them back to Polkerris. These will be placed in the yard for
your collection after the swim.

There is a large car park on the right before entering the
village. It is £1 per hour up to 3hrs and £4 for an All Day
ticket. The beach is only a five minute walk down the hill.
Additional parking can be found if you follow the road after
turning right for Polkerris (and not turn right again for the
village). This is a simple field and the charge is £2.50 per
day via an honesty box. The beach is a 4 minute walk via an
uneven track that is not suitable for buggies, wheelchairs or
those unsteady on their feet.
