Opening Swim – 30 Bays in 30 Days!
1 July 2017, 10:00 am–12:00 pm
The National Trust for Jersey and Jersey Hospice Care are delighted to announce this year’s launch of ‘30 bays in 30 Days’ with its first opening swim of 2017.
The clue to the challenge is in the title! Participants,(which can be individuals, families or groups,) will aim to swim in 30 bays around the island in the month of July. The challenge will run between Saturday 1st July and Monday 31st July 2017. Those taking part can choose to swim before work, lunchtimes, daytime, after work, before a picnic tea, by moonlight………..basically anytime they can fit a swim in!
You don’t need to be a strong swimmer; you only need to swim 30 strokes in each of the bays. Participants with mobility issues can also choose to swim in one bay or perhaps at the Havre des Pas bathing pool – whatever suits their needs. The organised swims to open and close the month long event take place on 1st and 30th July respectively and are open to everyone who registers. Between these events, you can decide where and when you swim to complete the challenge.
The whole concept is based on the fact that we are lucky enough to have so many amazing places to go sea swimming. Swimmers can experience a fun way of making the most of living in our beautiful island, feel that they have achieved something this summer, visit bays they have never swum in before or haven’t visited for years and make them feel alive and loving life!
