Would you like to conquer the Everest of the swimming world?
Want to swim from England to France and be proud to say “I am a Channel Swimmer?”
This swim is seen as the Mt Everest of all swims because more people have climbed Mt Everest than have swum the English Channel.
SwimTayka provides this unique opportunity to raise money for a swimming non-profit organisation and follow your passion for swimming at the same time.
Swim to France and know that you are helping some of the poorest children around the world learn to swim and receive education about looking after the open water where they live.
We are delighted to help bring swimming enthusiasts closer to their swimming dreams and help you conquer this world-renowned challenging swim as part of a six-person relay swim.
This event is for 2019, places get booked up quickly so, sign up now.
Teams of six people swim one hour each, with swims taking anywhere from 12 to 18 hours depending on the weather and the conditions on the day. Each swimmer may get up to three sessions in the water.
We have slots available for between 17th and 21st July 2019. Don’t worry if you cannot make these dates, as we also have a number of other dates through the year, providing plenty of other opportunities for you to take part.
