FAQs

What sort of challenge can I choose?

Take part in the Outdoor Swimming Society’s Couch to 5K swimming programme. This would suit experienced swimmers who can manage 30 minutes swimming in a pool and have time to commit to a serious training plan and a final swim of up to 2.5 hours.

Swim between Brighton’s two piers or take part in the iconic Pier to Pier race with Brighton Swimming Club (registration is required and places are limited). It would suit experienced swimmers who want to push themselves to compete against regular sea swimmers.

Commit to swim daily/weekly for a month or more. You can clock up your distance by working out your swimming pace eg. 1 kilometre every 15 mins. This would suit most swimming abilities and one for the kids as well.

Get a team together and give yourselves a target to swim collectively, like the distance of the English Channel (approx 21 miles).

Need some help or new to sea-swimming? Our partners, Ocean Set, offer a range of group and 1-2-1 training sessions with professional swimming coaches. They are offering participants 50% discount on 1-2-1 training.
