The Dart 10k was the first, and is arguably the finest, 10k swim on the open water calendar. It has grown from 200 swimmers to 1600. The course of the Dart 10K is a unique journey punctuated by landmarks such as the Cormorant Tree, the white rock, Sharpham boat house and Bow Creek. It’s supported by volunteers from the local and swimming community who make it special. It’s not a race – we have some fantastic and some very fast swimmers, we have skin swimmers, disabled swimmers, newbies, butterfly swimmers – but whatever the level, the language of the day is different. It’s a journey, not a race, and there’s room for everyone in the river.

Plan to be in Totnes between 5.30am - 7.30am on the morning of your swim, and to be comfortable, an hour before your safety briefing time - check the timings published on the Dart 10k page of the OSS website and in your Swimmers Event Info Pack in the run up to the event.

Safety briefings will be from 6.50 am on Saturday and 7.20am on Sunday, depending on your speed wave. Swimmers with Medical and Access needs are briefed earliest, followed by Leisurely Swimmers, with the Fast swimmers briefed last. Swimmers will enter the water at or shortly after high tide, at 7.30am Saturday or 8am Sunday. If you miss your safety briefing you will not be able to swim, so allow plenty of time to reach Totnes.
