Nearwater Creek Safari Swim


5.3km downstream swim with the Nearwater Creek Safari Swim.

Saturday 7th July 5.3 km Open Water Swim - Swim Start 08:30

The event will start at Ruan Lanihorne and finish at Smugglers Cottage about 5.3 kms downstream. 

The swim will start at high tide and swimmers will therefore be aided by an out going tide.  The inlet is peaceful, beautiful and ideal for swimming as it is well protected by high wooded banks which come right down to the waters edge.
Registration at Smugglers Cottage (The Roseland Side of The King Harry Ferry) at 06:30 until 07:30.  Then a bus will take all competitors to The Quay at Ruan Lanihorne for the start of the swim.
There will be a drinks station halfway down the course and there will be a breakfast bbq for all competitors at the finish at Smugglers Cottage.

Route of the Swim

Entry for this swim costs £40 (this includes the cost of breakfast after the race).  Wetsuits not compulsory for experienced long distance open water swimmers, but highly recommended for all others.  Swimming hats will be provided and must be worn.
