Swim Information 2026

We will open bookings for the 2026 swim season early January 2024 and will be posted here

Booking information

We only take two bookings per swim tide

  • 2 solo swims – neap tide
  • 2 relay swims – spring tide

We strongly recommend that international swimmers be in the UK five days before and after the swim window and UK based swimmers be flexible for the entire season, this gives the best chances of swimming if the weather is against us
