The 2019 Chestnut Appeal Burgh Island Swim will take place on Sunday 22nd September.

With a swim time of around 10.30am the swim will take place on a High Tide and is 1 mile in distance.

Burgh Island is one of the most spectacular Round Island swims in the UK and is an excellent chance to take part in an iconic swim around the Island made famous as a favourite getaway for Agatha Christie.

The Burgh Island swim is suitable for those who can swim the distance in a pool and have experience of Open Water Swimming and be confident swimming in various sea conditions.

Safety is always our top priority and as with all the Chestnut Appeal swims the Burgh Island swim will be supported by the team from Event Water Safety.  EWS will provide all the necessary craft, lifeguards and expert cover for the swim.

Registration for the swim is £30. 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 across Devon and Cornwall.  So we ask all our Burgh Island swimmers set themselves a Sponsorship target of at least £50.
