Delight in the Dart – River Dart Swims

We’ve only gone and done it! Finally we’ve set some dates for some delicious swims in the Dart.

With so much river to explore we have set aside 3 dates to take you swimming in what we think are the most beautiful parts of the river. Hopefully we’ll see the seal but we won’t be sharing our cakes with him!

What can you expect? 

A lovely swim, either 4k, 6k or 11k: Choose the distance you’d like to tackle and we’ll help you do it. Please bear in mind that this 11k is not tidally assisted as we swim out and around the tide not with it so it will be a lot harder than any 11k you’ve ever done before. You are welcome to try it but we highly recommend you can easily swim a mile in 30 minutes in open water and have swum more than 3 miles in open water before you tackle this

Huge amounts of encouragement from us: We’ll be in kayaks by your side, we’ll smile our way along and keep an eye on you, guiding you to the best bits and making your swim easier

Safety cover: We are all Qualified Surf Lifeguards and we will have all the necessary knowledge to keep you safe in the river as long as you are sensible too. I’m afraid our moto is:  ‘If there is any doubt we’ll get you out!’

Refreshments and delicious treats: Refreshments and refuelling on the river and some delicious home-made treats upon your return.

Post-swim social: Please don’t rush off, whatever the time, refuel and get to know your fellow swimmers, arrange to meet up again for more swims, this is just the start of the Dart!

The Dates: 5th July/ 6th July/ 17th August 2014

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we’ll either sign you up or put you on the waiting list. Numbers are limited so get booking! See you in the River.
