Exmouth Swimming and Life Saving Society will stage the 2012 Fairway swim on Sunday (June 3).

The race starts at 11.20am on the beach opposite the Grove Inn.

The swim has a full entry of 28 swimmers from across the country including a number of English Channel swimmers all of whom are hoping to complete the 4.5 mile course early in the season.

Exmouth channel swimmers Mark Westaway and Olly White are joined in the Exmouth team by Tara Dudley and Jamie Page who are both scheduled to swim the channel this year in August and September respectively.

The swim involves a kayaker with each swimmer and a number of other boats on the water for safety.

There will be a running commentary on the beach as the swim takes place and Exmouth Swimming and Life Saving Society hopes the event will be a fitting way to mark the jubilee weekend celebrations with spectators welcomed to support all participants.
