The Great Fjord Swim 2015 will take place on the 10th of October. 



  • The Great Fjord Swim is an open-water swimming event with a choice of 2 distances – 750m and 2km to suit everyone from first timers to cross-Channel wanna-bes!
  • 2015 will see a return to a linear course for the 2km event, as this was most popular with competitors.
  • Expert kayakers and safety boats will cover you all the way.
  • Wetsuits must be worn for the 750m swim but there is a non-wetsuit category for experienced swimmers in the 2km event as well as a wetsuit category.
  • Homemade soup to warm you afterwards and a free event swim-hat and t-shirt to take home.
