The Scilly Swim Challenge gets underway tomorrow as open water swimmers take on an epic adventure swimming island to island around the Isles of Scilly. 

Now in its 4th year the Scilly Swim Challenge sets the challenge of swimming from island to island starting at Bar Point on St Mary's and ending on Porthcressa Beach St Mary's. The 1-day challenge takes place tomorrow and the 2-day event, where the same course is split up over 2 days gets underway on Tuesday.

Tomorrow's one day event is sold out but space is available for the 2 day challenge. For more info go to scillyswimchallenge.co.uk.

Dewi Winkle who organises and runs the event along with Nick and Bryony Lishman who run Adventure Scilly on the islands spoke to Will about tomorrow's 1-day event and next week's 2-day event this week.

Good luck to all taking part and you can listen to Will talking to Dewi about the Scilly Swim Challenge below.
