Cape Point Group Swim

Swim For Hope around the Cape of Good Hope is an exclusive group swim attempt around Cape Point, to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust’s Bag of Hope project.  This “by invitation only swim” is organized by The Little Fighters Cancer Trust in association with Carina Bruwer and ALL moneys raise will go towards the charity.

Regarded by many as one of the most beautiful open water swims in the World, the rounding of Cape Point is an exclusive swim which is coveted by many in the open water swimming fraternity.  The spectacular and extreme 8km ocean swim stretches from Diaz Beach on the western side of Cape Point, to Buffels Bay on the Eastern side, and takes swimmers through the point where the two oceans (Atlantic and Indian) meet.

The 2015 group will go on standby on 21 March 2015.  Please email for more information
