The 2022 Breakwater Swim Jennycliff Bay

The 2022 Chestnut Appeal Breakwater swim is set to take place in Sunday 24th July with a swim time of around 9am.

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.
