Join us for one of our most popular open water swims and swim the Solent to the Isle of Wight. The Solent is the stretch of water that separates mainland England from the Isle of Wight.

Starting in Gosport, you will swim two and a half to three miles (depending on the tide) across the Solent to reach Ryde Sands on the Isle of Wight. You’ll be guided by rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) and kayaks the whole way to ensure a safe crossing, so there will be help and support on hand at all times, should you need it. Wetsuits are optional.

2020 Solent Swim dates: dates will be announced shortly.  Register your interest by emailing [email protected]
