Hampton Pier - Herne Bay
The Herne Bay Pier to Pier swim is a 750m, 1.5km or 3km swim beginning at Hampton Pier and will head out to the Pier in Herne Bay and back.
The timed Pier to Pier swim is a great way for both experienced and inexperienced sea swimmers to complete a swim in a sheltered yet challenging route across the coast to Herne Bay's iconic Pier (conditions permitting).
The full Pier to Pier 3km distance is a challenging swim for the novice open water swimmer. However, with 3 options to choose from, it is suited to anyone wishing to test themselves. The views of the beach and sense of achievement will be well worth the effort.
The swim will take place on Sunday 30th July with the start time 1700 from Hampton Pier. If the weather conditions are not suitable on the day we will notify you and rearrange the swim. Your entry will automatically be transferred to the new date of Sunday 17th September. However, if you are not able to do this date please let us know.
Swimmers will set off in one wave depending on the final numbers. Registration will open 1 hour before the event and will be on Hampton Pier itself.
The water temperature in the sea at Herne Bay in July can range between 15-18°C. Wetsuits are optional for the event if the water temperature is above 14°C. If the temperature is below 14°C then wetsuits are mandatory, although any type or style of wetsuit is acceptable. As for the air temperature for this time of year you can expect 18-22°C.
Swim Day Facilities
On the day there will be registration and a bag drop tent. The bag drop tent will be manned at all times. The event is minimalistic and is a "no frills" event. There is no medal, t-shirt or good bag, just the achievement of completing the challenge.
The club will be having a BBQ after the event so why not join us, just bring your own BBQ or a picnic and share your swim journey.
Only online bookings will be accepted, no on the day places will be available.
Swim entry includes an official event swim hat.
