Organiser’s Description

The Burgh Island Swim in South Devon is one of the most spectacular round island swims in the Country. This truly iconic one mile swim is now in its 6th edition, and attracts swimmers from far and wide. Swimming in the sea can be challenging and it is asked that all those who take part have experience of open water swimming and can complete around 100 lengths of a 25m pool. This event is in support of The Chestnut Appeal for men with prostate cancer and their families across Devon and Cornwall.
