The 2018 Chestnut Appeal Plymouth Breakwater Swim will take place on Sunday 5th August with a swim time of 08.30.

Registration takes place on the Historic Barbican before swimmers are taken out by boat to the Breakwater.

When the safety team, are in place the swim commences and some 40 minutes to two hours later swimmers will arrive on shore at Tinside Beach to warm applause and warm soup.

The swim is 2.2miles / 4km and we ask that all those taking part have experience of open water swimming and should be able to complete around 160 lengths of a 25m pool.

Event Water Safety will provide the craft and expert cover for the event.

This is going to be another great event for Plymouth and it is hoped that it will help raise lots of funds for the Chestnut Appeal as well as raising awareness of prostate cancer across the region.

To date the Breakwater swim has raised in excess of £140,000 for the Chestnut Appeal.

This will be the seventh annual Chestnut Appeal swim across Plymouth Sound and the 25th Chestnut Appeal sponsored swim.  So we will be Commemorating the event with specially designed swim caps.

Registration for the swim is £50 and we ask that those taking part raise a minimum of £50 through sponsorship for the Chestnut Appeal.
