Get your Vitamin Sea!

Publish date: 13 Jun 2023

There are just a few weeks to go until islanders take to the sea for the first of their annual 30 Bays in 30 Days swims and registration is NOW OPEN!

30 Bays in 30 Days is now firmly established in the island’s calendar and is open to Islanders of all ages who want to get outdoors and enjoy Jersey’s beautiful beaches, while also raising money for two loved, local charities: 494 people took part in the sea swimming event in 2022 which is now an annual tradition, it is hoped that even more people will take part this year and that significant funds are raised for The National Trust for Jersey and Jersey Hospice Care.

Participants are being encouraged to swim 30 strokes in 30 bays around the Island and enjoy their stunning surroundings and appreciate the benefits of sea bathing. For those who don’t wish to go that far, there is also the option to visit their closest or favourite bay 30 times and swim 30 strokes there.

The opening swim will be taking place at St. Brelade’s Bay on Saturday 1st July at 4.00pm and there will be a closing swim on Sunday 30th July again at 4.00pm.

Marina Brockbank, Community Engagement Officer at Jersey Hospice Care, said “It has been great to see 30 Bays in 30 Days grow in popularity over the years and become a staple part of Jersey summer. It gets everyone out an about exploring the Island, enjoying the sea and of course, raising valuable funds for two local charities.”

Donna Le Marrec, Marketing and Events Manager at the National Trust for Jersey, said ‘We hope as many people as possible will take part and enjoy the 30 Bays in 30 Days challenge. Please do not be put off if you think that you cannot complete the challenge in July, we encourage you to continue in August or just swim in your favourite bay as many times as you can’.

For more information and to register, head to the event website: 30bays30days.org.je.  Swimmers can also register online throughout the month of August.

The event is generously supported in 2023 by Pentagon, Network Insurance & Financial Planning, The Potting Shed and Fuse 2.
