Summer 2022

Summer 2022 will see the first regular Swim The Wight event where teams of experienced sea swimmers will be given the opportunity to swim around the Isle of Wight.

The distance is about 65 miles (100km) although, of course, the actual distance covered depends very much on the tides, currents and weather conditions.


Planning will begin this year. Individuals will be encouraged to raise money for Swim The Wight, Mountbatten, Isle of Wight Admiral nurses, The Youth Trust and The Way Forward Programme.
