The 2022 Breakwater Swim was re-routed and finished on the beach at Mount Batten.
Swimmers will register at Mount Batten and board the boat ‘The Plymouth Sound’ at Mount Batten Jetty. The trip to the eastern end of the Breakwater close to Bovisand Pier will take around 20 minutes. The Safety Briefing will be given on board the Boat by senior EWS staff.
Swimmers will alight the boat at the eastern end of the Breakwater near to Bovisand Pier. The swim route will be along the coastline at Jennycliff Bay.
Swimmers will be flanked by paddleboarders who will guide swimmers across the Bay. The route takes swimmers to the right of the Flyrix Buoy before making a straight line to the beach at Mount Batten.
Registration for the 2021 Breakwater swim is £55. 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 swimmers set themselves a Sponsorship target of at least £50.
Your £55 registration includes
- Water Safety Cover
- Event swim cap
- Full lifeguard and medical support
- An event medal
