07 Sep Padstow Rock Swim
What began in the early 1970s as a one woman’s way of raising a few extra pounds for local charities is today a major fixture on the Padstow calendar. Now partnered with the Marie Curie Cornwall Nursing Appeal the one mile swim, from Padstow to Rock, attracts enthusiasts and elite swimmers: in 2014 sponsorships exceeded £50,000. Safety is clearly a major priority, one of the reasons numbers are restricted to 300, divided into groups, and monitored the length of the course by a flotilla of boats carrying stewards and emergency services. If you’re a strong swimmer and you have a wet suit (its compulsory) and you fancy doing some good go to www.padstowtorockswim.org.uk
