International Women’s Day Celebratory Sea Swim!

Take Up Space: International Women’s Day Celebratory Sea Swim!

Join some of Folkestone’s regular sea swimmers for a celebratory dip. Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned pro, you will be made to feel welcome as you enjoy the benefits of a cold water swim.

Meet at the steps under the Mermaid Cafe. No booking required.

⚠️ Disclaimer: Swimming is at your own risk and the burden of safety is entirely your own. You judge when to get in and out the water, and how deep or far you will go out. There is no lifeguard (or first aid kit) and if this is a concern for you then think carefully about whether you wish to enter the water ⚠️

❄️ Remember the water can be cold, so it is important that you bring plenty of warm clothing and hot drinks for after the swim. Cake is good as well! ❄️

Do your research. You may also want to join the Outdoor Swimming Society FB group to become more informed about the risks and joys of cold water sea swimming
