Following the success of previous swims in the Adur, we're planning a new challenge for 2017 to match our Ironman distance swim in the River Arun, THE FIN SWIM! However, this one will be 5km but with the tide all the way so it'll definitely be the quickest 5km you'll ever swim!
There are three categories: Fin Swim, Fin Swim Plus & Just Swim, we'll think of some imaginative category names soon!
The Fin Swim category is just that, swim the 5km in a pair of fins to speed your way to finish.
The Fin Swim Plus is fins plus hand paddles and Just Swim is for all our normal swimmers looking for another challenging swim.
We'll take you by coach to the start, drop you off at high tide and you make your way back to Shoreham on the tide. You'll still have to negotiate the sandbanks & bridges for the quickest route and as you reach Shoreham you'll be swimming even faster.
The exact start time will be around 4pm, which is dependent on river and weather conditions, but our aim is to give you the best possibility of securing your personal best and having a great fun swim.
