Magical Winter Solstice Sunset Swim

Get in quick - this event is already half booked out!!


Winter in the ocean means clear, crispy cold water, usually flat with not much chop.

Evening swimming, as the sun goes down and the night sets in is your best chance to witness bio-luminescence - glowing organisms in the water lit up by movement.

So get in touch with nature (and your possibly pagan heritage) by swimming with our group in the evening of the longest night of the year. (Well actually the closest Saturday night to the Winter Solstice which is actually the 21 June, but you know we all work)

This is our ritual to respect the pagan Sun, Sea, Tides, Moon and the sacred turning of the seasons, the days get longer after this swim and soon it will be summer again.

Winter Solstice Sunset Swim participants get:

  • The opportunity to swim with our group in the middle of winter, in the sea, in the evening. 
  • Set your own pace and swim the whole course or part of it.
  • Chance to win some awesome swim swag/merchandise, like top quality swim goggles, tow float from Swim Secure and more great stuff to be announced soon, with your (included) raffle ticket.
  • A glowing safety marker for your goggle strap + glowing body paint for wrists.
  • A lighted course - of easy, at-your-own-pace evening swimming, from the Rock Groyne (breakwater) to the Fishing Club at other end of beach and back to hot tea, drinks and BBQ.
  • A team on boards and kayaks.
  • An amazing magical, unforgettable experience.
  • You can buy extra raffle tickets for your friends who aren't swimming to get them to come along and be part of an awesome Saturday night at the beach.
  • You can book for a friend by selecting Quantity of 2 (or more).

Contact me to discuss your nervous excitement about this event. This is your chance to do something that most people can't, won't or don't ever do. This is amazing, you will be nervous but you won't ever regret swimming in the clear, cold, winter water.

It will be dark by the time you finish and you will be a newer, upgraded version of yourself after this.
