On Sunday 7th August we’ll be returning to Spot-On Wake for our Bare it for the Bard Open Water Swim Challenge in memory of Sharne Phipps.

 This year’s event will be bigger and better with 2 swims to choose from:

• Challenge Swim (10am start) - swim as many loops as you can in 1 hour!

• 1 hour Freestyle Swim (11.15 am or 12.30 pm start)

Fun family activities

There will be activities on the day to keep the whole family entertained including the one of a kind Aqua Jungle (ages 8+ ) and demonstrations from some of Spot-On Wake’s seasoned wakeboarders.  

Register today 

It costs £10 per person to take part and we ask that you raise a minimum of £30 in sponsorship for the Hospice. Once you’ve registered you’ll receive a link to your personal fundraising page which you can share with family and friends. All swimmers will receive a branded Shakespeare Hospice swim hat and will take home a medal and certificate on the day.
