Wild Swim from Port Gaverne to Port Isaac

Put the date in your diary and plan your holiday to Cornwall for that week.  This years wild swim from Port Gaverne to Port Isaac will be held on 7th August 2011, raising money for the National Lobster Hatchery.

The event started last year and was such a success, organisers have decided to make it an annual event; only this year it’ll be bigger and better.

The actual swim is said to be 1 mile, round a beautiful bit of coastline, ending up at Port Isaac (a very quaint little Cornish harbour).  The Fisherman’s Friends are rumoured to be performing on stage, we will have our baby lobsters on display and there will be stalls and food to hand.  Not to mention the scattering of pubs next to the beach.

The official event website will be going live very soon so I will keep you informed.  I might even dig out a photo of Dom and I having completed the swim last year!
