Event Details


This is an extreme endurance event in variable conditions and water temperatures, requiring the highest level of mental determination. Although full safety cover is provided, the swimmer is expected to source a suitable escort boat and provide crew for it. This aspect of the swim is at least 50 % responsible for success. This years event will be run in the day time with a staggered start from 4am to try to achieve an 8pm finish for everyone. Past times have been between 9 and 26 hours!

There are only around 60 people who have completed this swim, the first one being Commander Gerry Forsburg in 1959. As a result of our amazingly successful anniversary relay in 2019 we are offering a new relay event to be held in conjunction with our end to end event.
