Our swimming is only available for those who are happy to swim 400m unaided, without stopping (16 lengths of a standard pool). You must be at least 18 years of age.

Our set up consists of two triangular courses set one inside the other, this is separated from the hire by a line of buoys. These two Triangles are 800m and 400m.


To swim you will have to have a bright swim hat or tow float and be either a member or registered and booked for PAYG in advance.
