Thanks to everyone who took part in the Arun swim with 248 of you managing to dip under the hour. Joint oldest at 76 years were Paul Webster from City of Canterbury and Keith Whitmee from Bognor Regis who clocked 1:05:33 and 1:08:45 respectively. Youngest trio of swimmers at 13 & under were Evie Medlow who somehow slipped through the net at 12 years of age & swam 59:04, Evie Martin from Sevenoaks SC did 50:04 and Evie Wootton from London and amazing 48:44.
First out the water was local Junior Tom Hogg from Littlehampton Swimming Club in 42:25 followed by another local Veteran Andrew Gowland in 44:49 (Tuff Fitty Tri Club) and Andrew Huckle from Waterlooville in 45:26 who’s in the Vintage category. First female and an impressive 6th overall was Sarah Wylie (Swimming Solutions) in 45:38, Lily Davis from Atlantis SC in 46:22 and first Junior & then Sam Nesbit from Southsea in 46:57.
The RNLI, Harbour Master, RIB crews from the Arun Youth Aqua Centre and our experienced safety kayakers were on the water with the Sussex Search & Rescue Team onshore as our spotters. Next year the Harbour Lights Café will be open which will be good as that is the heart of the event before & after the swim.

Our River Adur Fin Swim is now in its third year and numbers, like this one are increasing steadily already. It’s a 5km swim with the current in the River Adur at Shoreham on Saturday 31st August at 1:30pm. Swim times are just as quick, ranging from 52min for the fastest to 1hr 50min for the slowest. We’ll bus you up to the start by the old Cement Works in a vintage bus and you can then meander through the river finishing at the Adur Activity Centre and their great new facilities. Whilst it’s called the Fin Swim, the vast majority swim without them, but you’re more than welcome to wear a set of fins. At the finish you’ll get a large slice of complimentary flapjack, courtesy of Devon’s best baker https://flapjackery.co.uk/ We’ll even throw in free hot & cold drinks and of course free photos.
