Welcome to the home of the Wild Wye Swim!

The Wild Wye Swim is an annual long-distance swimming event in the beautiful River Wye, first held in 2017.   Swimmers have the opportunity to swim down the Wye from Kerne Bridge and from Lower Lydbrook to Huntsham Bridge.

The Swim is organised by SARA Trading Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of SARA (The Severn Area Rescue Association) – to raise vital funds to enable the charity to carry out its rescue work across the area.   SARA water rescue teams will provide safety cover throughout the length of the course

The 2022 event is provisionally set for Sun 18 Sept 2022. We expect to open entries on 1 Feb 2022.
