Kit List
Wetsuits will be compulsory for all swimmers. However, if you are an experienced open water sea swimmer and would like to swim without a wetsuit, please apply to [email protected] giving your recent experience and swimming history. Each case will be assessed independently on its own merits. Please note, without going through this process and receiving approval prior to the event, wetsuits are mandatory. All swimmers who do get approval will have to swim with a tow float.
This is probably the most perfect spectator friendly swim too as supporters can walk the whole length of the beach alongside the swim, stopping at cafes en route for leisurely food and drink.

Minimum Age

Because of the dangers of swimming in the sea, there is a minimum age of 18 for both distances in this event

Cutoff Times

For the full-bay swim, there is a cutoff time of 1:10
