 What is the Pier to Pier swim?

Organised and run by the IOW Marlins Masters Swim Club, the popularity of this event brings a plethora of swimmers to Sandown Pier where the swimmers then swim 1.8 miles across the Sandown/Shanklin Bay to finish on the beach outside the Shanklin Rowing Club, which is near the site of the old Shanklin Pier that was destroyed in the gales of 1987.

Last year All 122 swimmers safely completed the course, escorted by 32 kayakers, 2 Independent Lifeboats and 4 Shanklin Deep Sea Fisherman in motorised craft.

The 68th event will take place on Saturday 1st August 2020.
