The annual around the island swim took place on Saturday 14th March 2015. It is a gruelling 3.2Km swim around the island, as the name suggests. The swim event forms part of the Annual Langebaan Lagoon Festival.
The race is split into 3 options, a short 400m fun swim for the kids, a one mile out and back swim and the main event, the 3.2km Around the Island Swim. The one mile was first to go at 10h00, followed by the 3.2km ten minutes later. The 3.2km route took participants straight from the beach towards the island, where at a turn buoy 300m out swimmers had to turned left, swimming as close as possible to the rocky edge of the island. Entrants circumnavigated the island in a clock-wise direction. Once around the island, roughly 2.6km, swimmers ended back to the same turn buoy, made a left turn and headed straight back to the beach for the finish.
