Welsh Open Water Estuary Swim, Ferryside, Carmarthenshire, Great Britain

Monday, 20 July, 2015 (All day)


Welsh Open Water Estuary Swim

The Challenge: The swim is a 2km event from Ferryside to Llanstephan and back, across the Tywi Estuary.

The next Welsh Open Water Estuary Swim will be held in the Summer of 2015.  If you fancy jumping in the Towy before then why not get sponsored and join the lifeboat crew at their Annual New Year’s dip -  keep checking online for more details. We have been reading all the messages sent to us about the swim this year. Thank you for your interest.

last year’s swim saw 60 swimmers successfully brave the open water between Ferryside and Llansteffan. This is a fast growing event and last year we were pleased to see a number of people come from as far away as the USA. This event is organised by the crew of the Ferryside Lifeboat and an emphasis is placed on swimmer’s safety with excellent support provided by volunteers.
