RNLI Around the Mount Swim 2018

Swim for the RNLI

The RNLI Around the Mount Open Water Swim is a one and a half mile open water sea swim around the iconic St Michaels Mount in Mounts Bay, Cornwall.

Now in its fourth year, this challenge is a must for all sea swimmers and promises to be great fun. All money raised will go towards Penlee Lifeboat Station.

This popular event is strictly limited to 250 swimmers and is open to anyone over the age of 14. Please note, participants should be intermediate or experienced open water swimmers.

The swim is an absolutely fantastic event largely run by volunteers, without whom it wouldn’t be possible. It promises to be great fun with a fantastic atmosphere, so do come along and get involved.

  • Registration opens: 11:45am
  • Registration closes: 2pm
  • Safety briefing: 2:30pm
  • Swim start: 3pm 
  • End time: 6.30pm

If swimming isn't your thing but you would still like to be involved, please get in touch as there are many volunteering opportunities available on the day.
