Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that helps support Prostate, Testicular and Penile Cancer patients and their families.   That’s why we ask all our Looe Island Swimmers set themselves a fundraising target of at least £50. You can easily set up your Fundraising page via this link Chestnut Appeal Fundraising

Due to the pandemic we’ve been hit very hard, so this year your support is never more needed. 

Your £40 registration includes

  • Event swim cap
  • Full lifeguard and medical support
  • an event medal
  • A delicious pasty at the finish

The Looe Island swim offers unique viewing opportunities and finishes in the heart of Looe, so it’s not just an iconic swim for the competitors; it’s also great for friends, family and other spectators.

The Island itself is a nature reserve owned by Cornwall Wildlife Trust, and the organisers are grateful for the cooperation of the Trust in allowing the swim to start from the Island beach, and to the boatmen who will ferry swimmers out for the start.
