There’s no better way to enjoy the Great British Summer than with a dip in the open water while taking in the awe inspiring beauty of a setting sun. Luckily for Liverpudlians, Her Spirit has organised a brand new series of fun, friendly, inclusive swimming events hosted by open water venues across the UK, including Princes Dock in Liverpool.

The Her Spirit Sunset Swim Series, in partnership with Swim England and Zoggs, features one event per month from May to September. You can choose from a range of non-competitive distances from 500m to 2K and an official time will be given to each participant. Each swim costs £19.99(+£1.50), which also includes a Sunset Series swim cap and medal and 15% off Zoggs discount.
An urban open water swimming facility opened at Princes Dock in August 2021 and provides a unique destination for the people of Liverpool to take a dip in. The 500m course in Princes Dock will be clearly marked out so that swimmers can swim safely in laps around the dock, as well as a short 100m course, surrounded by the impressive backdrop of the world-famous Liverpool skyline and nearby cruise ships. Swimmers can buy a monthly pass for £20 giving them unlimited access to all sessions.
The Her Sprit Sunset Swim series will take place at Princes Dock on May 26, June 23, July 21, August 20 and September 15. The water temperature can vary each month with highs of 21°C during June and July. Participants must be 18+ and able to swim 200m. For further information and to sign up visit the event here.
