We want an Island where everyone who wants to swim in the sea can swim safely and where the benefits of sea swimming are known to all, regardless of physical or mental wellbeing. We want our community to be a beacon of hope for all seaside communities, showing that health and happiness do not depend solely on money.
We aim to promote safe sea swimming to all sectors of society, forming a community of sea swimmers who support and encourage each other both in swimming and non-swimming related activities. We aim to enthuse others by holding events and social activities; support and encourage research into the benefits of sea swimming and enable new people to try out sea swimming, by offering guidance together with moral and practical support. Where it proves necessary we will campaign to create a safer and more accessible environment for swimmers.
If you would like to support us in our mission, please consider becoming a Supporter or Subscriber of Swim The Wight. As a thank you, you will have first refusal on social events and special swims such as our ‘Swim The Wight Goes on Tour’ all for £30 a YEAR!
