Velotive 2015 Porthpean to Silvermine, Porthpean, St Austell, Cornwall, Great Britain

Saturday, 23 May, 2015 - 10:30

3,2 km

Saturday 23rd May – Porthpean

The first event in the inaugural Mad Hatter Sports Events sea swimming series is at Porthpean beach. Porthpean is somewhere that we swim regularly as the conditions are normally very good for swimming with the water often looking like a mirror. The water is pretty clear here too so expect to see some wildlife, you may even be greeted by the local seal but he is friendly.

The swim will start on the beach and you will swim out to a buoy and turn right and head towards Blackhead, half way out to blackhead there is a white building and that is where we will be aiming for.  At the building we will turn and head straight back to Porthpean beach. The distance of this race is approximately 3.2 km
