Brave the Atlantic Ocean in our premier 2.5km swim from the New Harbour to the historic Old Harbour, as the panoramic cliff path offers a perfect bird’s eye view to family, friends and fans. In 2018 we introduced a shorter 600m swim for those who aren’t quite brave enough to commit to a 2.5km swim just yet. In 2019 we will be introducing an ultra 5km swim for the Xtreme Open Water swimmers! This long swim will be starting at the Old Harbour, meeting the 2.5km swimmers at the New Harbour before turning back towards the Old Harbour.

The Open Water Xtreme is a must-do event for open water enthusiasts – there’s a distance for everyone!
