Brave the Atlantic Ocean in this 2.5km swim from the New Harbour to the historic Old Harbour, as the panoramic cliff path offers a perfect bird’s eye view to family, friends and fans. This year we’re also introducing the shorter 600m swim for those who aren’t quite brave enough to commit to a 2.5km swim just yet. Of course, you can enter both!

This is a must-do event for open water enthusiasts!
