Looe Island to East Looe Beach Swim
The 2020 Looe Island to East Looe Beach swim will take place on Sunday 13th September with a swim time of around 13.00.
The length of the swim is a little over a mile.
Swimmers are transported by Glass-Bottomed Boat to the Island where they will alight. The Safety Briefing will take place on the Island and once the safety team are in place the swim back to East Looe Beach will begin.
The swim is held in partnership with the Rotary Club of Looe.
Registration for the swim is £35. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families, so we ask all our Looe Island Swimmers set themselves a target of at least £50.
Your £35 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.
Safety will be provided the Looe RNLI, Looe Sailing Club and the Looe Harbour Commissioners.
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.
Money raised from the 2019 Looe Island Swim has been put towards the ongoing fundraising across Cornwall.
