The 2022 Drakes Island swim will take place on Sunday 3rd July with a swim time of around 08.00am

The swim starts on the beach at Firestone Bay with swimmers setting out for the Island, round a marker buoy and making their way back to the beach a distance of around 1.5km.  We ask that all participants are able to swim the distance in a pool, have experience of swimming in Open Water and in varying sea conditions.

Registration for the swim will take place in the Royal William Yard.

Situated in Plymouth Sound between Plymouth and the Cornish Coast, Drakes Island has been a place of pilgrimage, a refuge, a fort, a prison, an observatory and an adventure centre. The fortifications have defended Plymouth from the time of the Spanish Armada to the World Wars. It has been the starting point for the voyages of discovery of some of the greatest of our explorers, Drake, Cook and Darwin.

Registration for the 2022 Drakes Island Swim is £35. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event and the safety cover, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families across Devon and Cornwall.
