September events: Take the Scilly Sea Swim Challenge
Isles of Scilly
Watch the spectacle or put yourself to the test as challengers swim and walk between Scilly's main islands in just one day.
Starting at sunrise from Bar on the north side of St Mary's, over 150 thrill-seekers dive into the sea and begin the Scilly Swim Challenge. In a single day (also available as a more leisurely two-day event), swimmers will traverse the sea and cross between all six of the main islands that make up the Isles of Scilly.
While the event is non-competitive, it is only recommended for those looking to challenge themselves; with a total distance of approximately 15km and the low temperatures of the September seas, this is not for the faint of heart!
The One Day Scilly Swim Challenge takes place on 10 September, while the Two Day Challenge takes place between 7-8 September. Tickets to both challenges are available to purchase from the website.
