Jubilee Pool Penzance brings back a community sea swim.

We invite swimmers to take on a swim challenge beyond the walls of the pool. It is known to the locals that, in Penzance, the last weekend in August on the biggest tide there is a sea swim race from Newlyn across the prom to Jubilee pool slipway. We want to bring it back, with recorded times, set categories, goodie bags, and prizes from dedicated sponsors. 

During lockdown outdoor sports and fitness have seen a huge surge in interest. Individuals have chosen to spend their leisure time outdoors enjoying activities with their family and friends with an element of sport and fitness, from walking, sea swimming, and cycling. This will be a great opportunity to meet up in a fun way with still the element of fitness and exercise. We want to encourage Cornwall residents, families, and those traveling to Cornwall to come and try out the mile sea swim or simply come and watch, enjoying the event as a community. 
The swim will be a challenge to all involved, but a welcomed achievement after limited competitive sea swimming events available to the public.
