Watch this space for details of the Western Solent swim in 2023. 

You will be taken by boat from Lymington to a point close to The Needles on the Isle of Wight where you will enter the water.  You'll swim, following a series of buoys, back to Hurst castle on the south coast.  We will then take you back to Lymington by boat.
