The Bantham Swoosh

Bantham Beach, Devon

The Workshop, Bantham, Kingsbridge TQ7 3AN, UK

Sat 10th July 2021

Organiser's Description

The Swoosh is a world class 6k swim in a sandy bottomed estuary in Devon. Among the things that make it special is that 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. It’s exciting, invigorating, beautiful and fun. It's a great way to start a Summer of swimming.
