The Jersey Long Distance Swimming Club (JLDSC)

The aim of The Jersey Long Distance Swimming Club (JLDSC) is to encourage as many people as possible into swimming in the sea, just for the sheer pleasure and exhilaration of it!

Contrary to belief, you do not have to have aspirations of being a Channel swimmer to join our Club! We welcome anyone, from children to adult, who has a desire to extend their swimming abilities beyond the confines of a swimming pool. Whether you want to swim 500 metres or the Channel, we cover everything else in between too. With over 46 years’ experience of sea swimming, we are happy to help you with your goal, whatever it may be.In winter we are based at Aquasplash and sessions take place every Tuesday evening : Juniors swim from 6.30pm to 7.30pm and Seniors swim from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. In summer we move to St Catherine’s Breakwater slipway and swim on Tuesday evenings at 6.30pm. Sunday morning swims travel around the Island to various locations, which are published in our summer swim programme and displayed on our website. Times and locations vary. If you wish to become a more confident sea swimmer then we are ready and waiting to help you.

From spending 5 minutes in the cold water to spending twenty-two hours in the English Channel, it takes a lot of preparation on your part, but we shall be happy to join you on your journey. Don’t delay, send us an email or come along to one of our swims and you could soon join a crazy band of dedicated swimmers in “possibly the best little swimming club in the world”.
