The date for the 2013 Wild West Solent Swim has been announced as 18th August. Participants aged between 18 to 73 swim from Hurst Castle on the Mainland to Colwell Bay on the Island. They are accompanied by over 40 kayakers and a flotilla of safety boats organised by the Freshwater Inshore Lifeboat Crew.
Last year over £30,000 was raised and shared between the West Wight Sports Centre and 16 other charities.
