RNLI Castle 2 Castle Open Water Swim 2020

Swim for the RNLI

This year’s swim which was due to take place on Sunday 31st May has been postponed due to Covid-19 - a provisional date has been set for Saturday 12th September but will be reviewed in July based on the latest Government advice.

The Castle 2 Castle Swim is an iconic one mile open water sea swim across the Carrick Roads. It starts at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth and finishes at St Mawes Castle on the Roseland Peninsula.

This popular event is strictly limited to 450 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.

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.

To register visit the eventbrite page.

Registration for the swim is £25 and we ask everyone to pledge to raise £50 through sponsorship.
