The Looe Island to East Looe Beach swim will take place on Sunday 8th September with a swim time of around 13.00. The length of the swim is a little over a mile. Swimmers are transported by Glass-Bottomed Boat to the Island where they will alight. The Safety Briefing will take place on the Island and once the safety team are in place the swim back to East Looe Beach will begin. Last years swim was a huge success and the 120 swimmers raised a fantastic 12,000. The swim is held in partnership with the Rotary Club of Looe.
Swimming Events in Plymouth, South West
The Swim Festival is a mass-participation open water sea swimming event and a great chance to challenge yourself in a particular distance. If you're feeling fit and strong you could swim two or even all three distances!
The event offers a choice of a 1km, 2km, or 3km distance. The course will consist of 1km laps and will include a very short Australian exit near the water's edge ideal for spectators.
Each swim will have a separate start time. So there's
a chance to swim three times and clock up 6km.
That would deserve some well earned kudos!
Each competitor will receive a swim hat and a special commemorative medal. If you enter all 3 swims you
will receive a 20 discount on the total entry fee.
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.
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. Its supported by volunteers from the local and swimming community who make it special. Its 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. Its a journey, not a race, and theres room for everyone in the river.
