This historic swim has been held in Clevedon since at least 1928, which is when two large silver trophies were first presented to the fastest swimmers. These were called The Oakhill Brewery cup for men and The Rose Bowl trophy for the ladies. Keeping with tradition, these are only presented to non-wetsuit swimmers. The swim starts at Ladye Bay after the tide has turned. Swimmers are then carried swiftly back on the River Severn’s famously fast tide, under the Grade 1 pier, and finish at Clevedon beach.
