We are delighted to continue with our main sponsors The Metropole Hotel, Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, and Sharp’s Brewery. In 2014 we welcomed The Mariners Lettings at Rock as a major sponsor. Their additional sponsorship has enabled us to purchase 6 large new buoys to mark the channel and finish line for the swimmers.


Padstow to Rock Swim Sponsors from left to right:

Ben Young (The Metropole Hotel), Peter Tamblin (Swim Organising Committee), Emma Beddington (Sharp’s Brewery), Jack Stein (The Seafood Restaurant) & Jan Perry (Marie Curie Nurse)

Their additional commitment to the swim as sponsors has enabled our financial outgoings to be reduced down to very close zero; almost all of the monies raised will go to our chosen charity, Marie Curie.
