The Bantham Swoosh

Bantham Beach, Devon

The Workshop, Bantham, Kingsbridge TQ7 3AN, UK

Sat 16th July 2022

Organiser's Description

The Swoosh is a world class 6km estuary swim down the River Avon in Devon. Among the things that make it special is the fact the estuary we swim in is both shallow and sandy bottomed – so water is clear rather than muddy, and swimmers have a view of the sandy bed most of the way.

The swim culminates in a “swoosh” as the ebbing tide is funnelled through a narrow section of river, speeding you along over the riverbed at up to four times your usual swimming speed. It can run at 8 knots.

An exciting, invigorating, beautiful and fun swim, which is open to all – fast swimmers, leisurely swimmers, skins swimmers, wetsuit swimmers, disabled swimmers, and swimmers of all ages (with a MiniSwoosh for children).
