Solent Swim 22

Saturday 23rd July 2022 – get the date in your diary, start your training NOW!

Back up date Sunday 24th 

Entries will open on February 1st

The Solent Swim is one of the main fundraising events for the Centre and since our first event in 2010, more than 400 people have swum the Solent and raised over £200,000 for the charity.

All swimmers are expected to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship for the Centre.

We will require you to provide evidence of your time to swim 100 lengths of a 25 metre pool. This can be done at a designated session at WWSCC.

We also require evidence of your open water swimming competence by attending one of two sessions arranged at Colwell for you. If you do not attend one of these sessions you must provide us with evidence of your competence in open water.

All kayaker must provide evidence of their competence to be part of the safety back up on the day.
