SOLENT SWIM 2010 – URGENT NEWS

We very much regret that, following discussions with the Solent Coastguard, we will not be able to swim across the Solent in September. We have agonised long and hard over this decision, as we know how much effort and training you have all invested into this swim, and have not made it lightly. We have been unable to secure enough safety canoes to ensure that you have a safe swim across the Solent, and as we cannot compromise on safety we have to cancel the swim.

We are able to offer an alternative swim on the same day at a similar time: along the coastline from Barton on Sea to Milford on Sea, an open water swim of approximately 3.5 miles. We do have enough safety vessels to enable us to offer this alternative, as you will be swimming along the shoreline. This will be better for spectators as they will be able to walk along the beach or the cliff top and support you along the way.
