Aldeburgh to Orford Fundraising Flotilla

Ahoy there swimmers, kayakers, canoeists, paddle-boarders and rowers!

You are invited to participate in a fundraising flotilla in aid of The Alde & Ore Estuary Trust (AOET), starting from Aldeburgh Yacht Club, making your way along the treasured estuary to Orford Sailing Club. The distance is just under 5 miles. With help from the outgoing tide it will take a good swimmer about one and a half hours and a recreational swimmer two hours or more.

The entry fee donation is £50 per swimmer (maximum 100) and £30 for each kayaker, canoeist, paddle-boarder and rower (maximum 50). The entry fee donation is refundable if, through sponsorship, each swimmer donates £50 or more and each kayaker, canoeist, paddle boarder or rower donates £30 or more to AOET.

There will be two classes of swimmers, elite and recreational. The elite swimmers will be timed and competent at swimming long distances (3+ miles) in open water. All swimmers will be provided with a numbered, high-vis swimming cap and recreational swimmers will be provided with a towable swimming float which must be used. Non-swimmers will be expected to provide support and act as safety vessels to swimmers if required in light of reduced entrance fee and will be provided with a numbered baseball cap to be worn throughout the event.
