The Selkie Henley Classic is a 2.1km upstream point to point swim on the course of the Henley Royal Regatta, taking place at dawn on Sunday 30th June 2019.
This swim is now in its 15th year. It started with two people in 2004, and now attracts hundreds of swimmers, having become established as a must-do event in the open water swimming calendar. There is no other opportunity to swim this course, at this time of day.
A key feature of the event is that you arrive in darkness and walk the 1/4 of a mile to the start into the sunrise, led by the torch carrier.
