Bantham Boomerang



Age 18 & over

  • 3 km sea swimming


The Bantham Boomerang is a 3-8km swim in the Avon Estuary in Devon, taking place on a Saturday evening, with a celebration afterwards and overnight camping available on the Bantham Estate. The Boomerang swim starts at Bantham Beach (home to the Swoosh), with swimmers heading upriver with the assistance of the incoming tide. When the tide turns, so do the swimmers, swimming back downriver with the outgoing tide, swooshing into Bantham Beach and the finish line. The distance you swim will depend on your swimming speed, and everyone is welcome. Some swimmers will make it all the way to the turnaround pontoon upstream before the tide turns, others will have a shorter journey. Our fantastic safety team will be there to support you every step of the way.
