Oddicombe Beach Sea Swimming

We are delighted to have teamed up with Oddicombe Beach Sea Swimming (aka Oddicombe Rubber Duckers) who offer BCSC members* Open-Water sea swimming sessions every Saturday morning, weather permitting.

For all ages and abilities, whether you just want to dip, are keen to progress your open-water swimming, or are training for open-water events.

*Attending these swimming sessions does not incur extra costs, but any member wishing to use the bottom clubhouse and changing/shower facilities must pay the Beach Clubhouse access fee through MMJ.

Other events

  • Wednesday, 3rd July, 7th August, 4th September and 2nd October.
  • Start time 6.30 pm Oddicombe Beach, safety briefing 6.15 pm.
  • Three distances will be set, so if you wish to use these events to gain more experience in swimming in open water or use them as a time trail for future events, these are for you.
  • Choose a 500m shoreline course, 750m 1 lap or 1500m 2 lap course.
  • There will be a one-hour cut-off time for all three distances.
  • Wet suits and tow floats are not compulsory. It is recommended to wear wetsuits if the water temperature is less than 14°C, and if you do not regularly swim ‘skins’ in open water, wetsuits do give more buoyancy.
  • Fees £5 cash payable on the day.
  • The event will be cancelled if sea conditions are unfavourable(Easterly winds are unsuitable).
  • On-water safety team.
