The Plymouth Breakwater swim

June 25 @ 7:00 am 11:30 am

The 2023 Chestnut Appeal Breakwater swim is scheduled to take place on Sunday 25th June with a swim time of around 9am. Swimmers will register at Mount Batten and board the boat ‘The Plymouth Sound’ at Mount Batten Jetty. The trip to the eastern end of the Breakwater close to Bovisand Pier will take around 20 minutes. The Safety Briefing will be given on board the Boat by senior EWS staff. Swimmers will alight the boat at the eastern end of the Breakwater near to Bovisand Pier. The swim route will be along the coastline at Jennycliff Bay a distance of around 3.2km. Swimmers will be flanked by paddleboarders who will guide swimmers across the Bay. The route takes swimmers to the right of the Flyrix Buoy before making a straight line to the beach at Mount Batten. Registration for the 2023 Breakwater swim is £55. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, 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 £55 registration includes; Water Safety Cover, Event swim cap and event medal and post swim snack.

We love it when historic vessels pass through the marine park. Such a lovely sight 💙

This is the Lynher Tamar River barge. It was built in 1896 and underwent a restoration in 1990s. Now it is used for education workshops and sailing experiences around #PSNMP and the River Tamar.

Ever wondered what it's like to be a Plymouth Sound National Marine Park volunteer?

We had a chat with Maddie from @plymuni at one of our events, and here's her take on volunteering with us. We agree with Maddie; just give it a go! 😄
