It attracts hundreds of swimmers, having become established as a must-do event in the open water swimming calendar. There is no other opportunity to swim this course, at this time of day. You arrive at the event in darkness and walk the 1/4 of a mile to the start into the sunrise, the first wave led by the torch carrier.
