We wanted to once again notify you of the Swoosh swimming event which will be taking place on Saturday 4 July 2020 with swimmers entering the water at Aveton Gifford from 6am and exiting at Bantham Beach by 9:15am.
We are also introducing a new swim in 2020: the Bantham Boomerang, to be held on Friday 3 July 2020. Swimmers will enter the water from Bantham beach at approximately 16:30 and swim upstream with the tide. All swimmers will turn with the tide at 18:00 (wherever they are in the river) and return to Bantham beach. We expect the last swimmer to be out of the water by 20:00.
We are once again working very closely with Aveton Gifford Parish Council and the Bantham Estate on these events. We will be having another 7 swimmers fundraising again this year for the Aveton Gifford Community Swimming Pool and Pre-school.
If you’d like any further information about the event please let me know.
