Southwold Pier to Pub Swim

By Emma Hibbert, also posted in News on

Following the Active Outdoor Sport ‘Southwold Pier to Pub Swim’ sponsored by Adnams yesterday we would like to express our relief that no one was injured and our gratitude for to the emergency services, in particular the Southwold RNLI Lifeboat crew and Waveney Canoe Club, who returned many fatigued swimmers back to the shore. Adnams is proud to support many events throughout the summer, from county shows and arts-based festivals to more active mass-participation events such as bike rides and specialist events such as this swim. In all cases we ensure that the event organisers carry out full risk assessments to safeguard the safety of those taking part. Active Outdoor Sport is a professional sport events company with several years experience organising sea swims, triathlons and a regular swim centre at Fritton Lake. We are liaising with them to fully understand how yesterday, the second year of the Southwold Sea Swim, ended in such drama. Once again, we would like to thank the emergency services for ensuring everyone’s safe return. The organisers have published an open letter, which can be read here.
