The Drakes Island Swim – Registration now closed
23rd July 2023 @ 7:00 am – 11:30 am
REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED.
The 2023 Drakes Island swim Sunday 23rd July. Swim Time 09.00. The swim starts on the beach at Firestone Bay with swimmers setting out for the Island, round a marker buoy and making their way back to the beach a distance of around 1.5km. We ask that all participants are able to swim the distance in a pool, have experience of swimming in Open Water and in varying sea conditions. Registration for the swim will take place in the Royal William Yard. The £35 entry fee covers the cost of organising the event and the safety cover, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families across Devon and Cornwall. So we ask all our swimmers set themselves a Sponsorship target of at least £50. Your £35 registration includes; Water Safety Cover. Event swim cap. Full lifeguard and medical support. An event medal and a post swim snack.
