About the event

Jump this July!

In 2016, we launched a fundraising initiative in conjunction with the National Trust for Jersey, called 30 Bays in 30 Days – and what a great success it was! We are delighted to confirm that the event will be held again this year and we hope that as many people as possible will register to swim a minimum of 30 strokes in 30 bays from the list attached. It all takes place between 1 and 31 July. Don’t worry if you can’t fit it all in during July – please carry on swimming in August so you can tick those bays off your personal list.

Maybe make an afternoon of walking from bay to bay to tick a few off or plan a couple of coastal swims with friends or family, followed by a picnic or BBQ? It’s all about creating great memories and enjoying the summer fun.

We are lucky to have so many amazing places to swim off Jersey, although some places may present a challenge to get to. If you would like to get involved, but think that you will be unable to swim at every bay on the list, you are free to choose which bays work for you, to complete 30 swims at those to complete the challenge.

We are fortunate to live on a beautiful island with many lovely beaches. Please remember to only leave footprints after your swims, to help keep the beaches and bays looking this way.

We are hopeful that we will be able to have an opening / celebration swim. We will be keeping a close eye on Government guidelines surrounding COVID 19. More details will be sent to you closer to the time.

This year we are asking all participant’s to raise a minimum of £30 in sponsorship. Please do set up your fundraising page through Race Nation.

This year, we will be offering fantastic medals to the those who raise the following in sponsorship:

For the first 20 Children who raise £200 or more.

For the first 5 Adults who raise £500 or more

For the first 5 Teams who raise £500 or more

For the first 5 Families who raise £500 or more

Head to the event’s website for lots more information. Please also like and share our Facebook and Instagram pages, to be kept up to date with information in the lead up to the event and throughout July. We’d also love to see your photos on our pages, so feel free to post!

 

You don’t need to be a strong swimmer; you only need to swim 30 strokes in each of the bays. Participants with mobility issues can also choose to swim in one bay, such as the Havre des Pas bathing pool, whatever suits their needs.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t quite fit all the swims in during July – please carry on swimming in August so that you can tick all those bays off your list!
