Last call for entries to Burnham-On-Sea's 2011 Stert Island Swim

Organisers of Burnham-On-Sea's annual Stert Island Swim have this week made a final call for entries to this year's event.

The entry period for the popular swim began earlier this year and 20 places remain available.

The unique 2,400m race will this year take place on September 4th, starting at 11.30am. The participants will swim from Burnham beach to Stert Island and back in front of large crowds of watching spectators along The Esplanade.

Organiser Sara Hudghton of West Country Triathletes told "There has been a lot of interest from the swimmers again this year and we now have just a few places to fill before the closing date of August 14th."

Entry forms are available online here. The event is being supported by BARB, RNLI, the Town Council, English Nature, Taunton Canoe Club, St John Ambulance and West Country Triathletes.

West Country Tri-Athletes took over the organisation of the annual summer event in February 2008 after Sedgemoor District Council said it could no longer afford to run it.
