Drake's Island Swim

The Chestnut Appeal’s Drake's Island Swim returns for 2020, with entrants setting off from the beach at Plymouth's Firestone Bay, before swimming to Drake's Island and back.

Situated in Plymouth Sound, Drake's Island has been home to a military fortification since the time of the Tudors. Today this stunning 6.5-acre location is in private hands.

Registration for the 2020 Drake's Island Swim costs £30 (which doesn’t include the booking fee). Your entry fee covers:

  • Water Safety Cover
  • Event swim cap
  • Full lifeguard and medical support
  • An event medal
  • Cake and refreshments

This is a fantastic event for for anyone who's new to an organised open water swim and thinks they have what it takes to complete the 1.5km course. Indeed, over the years it has attracted swimmers of all abilities and ages.

Swimmers are asked to set themselves a sponsorship target of at least £50.
