The Bantham Swoosh

Date & Location

Bantham Beach, Devon

Organiser’s Description

This 6k swim was a new event on the OSS Calendar in 2015, and in 2016 we hope to see it spread to 2 days, with a dusk swim on Saturday 3 July, and a dawn swim on the Sunday. The swim takes you from a narrow inland Devon river to the sea, and as you approach the end of the swim the estuary narrows, creating the 'swoosh': an increasingly fast moving body of water that carries you towards the sea, and which can run at 8 knots! The Swoosh is a low-key event - all the better to enjoy ending the swim on one of the Devon's finest family surfing beaches. Date tbc.
