ABOUT OUR EVENT

Over 20 years ago I was lucky enough to be involved in a team 12 hour sailing event and had a blast! The idea was born and I knew one day I would like to do a similar challenge. The concept of keeping forward motion for a 12 hour period with NO stopping, treading water or feet down, really excited me. And to share it with some like minded pals seemed fun.

Over the last few years I have got close, but it was to be winter last year, 2016, when I was able to put together a team who shared the same enthusiasm and positive attitude as myself. Many meetings later with various people, deciding upon a date, a charity to raise funds for, a swimming coach, a support team, PR and marketing strategies, it seemed that my dream was going to come true.....

So, on Thursday 29th June 2017 from 8.00am until 8.00pm a 12 hour continual swimming challenge will take place in the Fingal Centre swimming pool in Portree.

The rules – simple – NO stopping!
