Safety is always our top priority and as with all the Chestnut Appeal swims the Burgh Island swim will be supported by the team from Event Water Safety. EWS will provide all the necessary craft, lifeguards and expert cover for the swim.

Registration for the swim is £30. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families across Devon and Cornwall.

So we ask all our Burgh Island swimmers set themselves a Sponsorship target of at least £75.

Every 45 minutes, a man dies from prostate cancer in the UK.

To date the Burgh Island swim has raised over £120,000 for the Chestnut Appeal.
