Vobster Quay in association with TRIbal Triathlon is proud to launch an amazing new open water endurance swim event - the 3 SIX 12 Sundowner Endurance Swim. Open to swim members and non-members alike, this new event is unlike anything we've ever done before! Are you ready to accept the 3 SIX 12 challenge?

Solo swimmers and relay teams will aim to swim the longest distance they can achieve in three, six or twelve hours. Swimming in the crystal clear waters of Vobster Quay, those undertaking the 12 hour swim will start their swim in the mid-day sun and complete their swim under a magical star-lit sky.

Swimmers are able to take as many rest breaks as they wish and relay swimmers may change over swimmers at any point in time depending on their swim plan, but at the end of a completed lap. Relay teams can be made up of upto four swimmers and will be registered as a team on the day of the event.

Whether you are training towards a long swim event, planning to swim solo or just fancy getting your swimming friends together for a fantastic shared experience, it's sure to be both challenging and fun.

THAT FESTIVAL FEELING!
Fresh from performing at Glastonbury Festival, there will be live music by the Vobster Quay firepit from talented local musician Sam Evans. Participants can also look forward to delicious food from local artisan Greek café Meraki.

To aid your performance, there will be athlete support from Yonda Wetsuits and, for those involved in the 12-hour swim, nutritional support from Precision Fuel and Hydration. Last but not least, we'll have fantastic prizes to be won and so much more – it promises to be a real festival atmosphere!

A GREAT CHARITY OPPORTUNITY
To give your participation a real sense of purpose, why not consider supporting a charity of your choice by getting yourself sponsored? We encourage all participants to use this opportunity to fundraise for whatever charity is close to their hearts. This is your chance to make a real difference and have some serious fun!

Spaces for this fabulous new endurance swim event are limited so book your space early to avoid disappointment. Click the big red button now!
