NEWLYN TO PENZANCE
This year, Wild Edge Swim is running guided swims from Newlyn to Penzance in July, August and September, when the sea is at its warmest.
Treat yourself to the rewarding experience of walking along Penzance promenade from Battery Rock along to Newlyn Green, then swimming back to your start point!
You’ll be supported and guided every step/stroke of the way, so you can relax and enjoy the stunning vista of Mount’s Bay by land and sea!
To ensure optimum sea, tide and weather conditions, I will announce the guided swim dates on my website and social media three days before each swim takes place. Keep your eyes peeled on INSTAGRAM: and FACEBOOK, so you don’t miss the chance to book your place on this very special swim experience.
per person, for a group of 4-6 people
per person, for a group of 7-12 people
Newlyn to Penzance, 1 km walk plus 1 km swim
Trip length is approximately 20 minutes’ walk, plus as long as it takes to swim back (as a guide, during previous swims most participants have completed the distance in around 45 minutes).
In order to enable everyone in the group to swim at a comfortable pace without being held back or feeling under pressure to catch up, I will separate swimmers into two groups, based on ability and efficiency.
What it costs
Depending on the size of the group there are two rates:
4-6 people: £40 per person;
7-12 people: £34 per person.
Sea swimming experience:
You need to be able to swim at least 1.6 km/1 mile comfortably in the sea, and have done so previously on several occasions. You must also be accustomed to spending at least one hour in the sea in UK waters.
A wetsuit, goggles, swim cap and tow float must be worn. Swim fins are a useful aid for this course but are optional if you are on a budget or have lower back issues.

Swimming without a wetsuit
Swimmers who have evidence of open-water skins race times (swimming in a competition without wearing a wetsuit) may be permitted to participate in these guided swims wearing only a swimsuit. Please enquire.
Ella Turk-Richards is a fully qualified beach lifeguard so you are in safe hands.
