Solent Swim 21

Sunday 4 July 2021

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.

The 2021 Solent Swim is now FULL! Any entries received from now on will be placed on a waiting list

Due to the times of tides, this years event will take place in the early evening. The back up date (in case of cancellation) will be Sunday July 18th, also in the evening

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 on June 20th.

We also require evidence of your open water swimming competence – either by attending one of two sessions arranged at Colwell for you on 13th June at 1000 or 22nd June at 1900. If you do not attend one of these sessoins you must provide us with evidence of your competence in open water.

All kayaker must also either attend on 13th or 20th or provide evidence of theor competence to be part of the safety back up on the day.

Final event timings will be published closer to the event date.


If you can help with kayak or safety boat support,  or onshore – please get in touch or complete one of the form belows.
