HK360Swim is a 45km swim circumnavigation of Hong Kong Island. The swim starts at Sai Wan Swimming Shed near Kennedy Town, the only swimming shed in Hong Kong still open to the public, clockwise through Victoria Harbour, Shek’O and Ap Lei Chau.

Last year, we provided live GPS tracking for Simon's swim around the island of Hong Kong. Simon set a record breaking time of 12 hr 32 m.
The swim raised over 1.1 million HKD for Splash Foundation, a non-for-profit swim school for the under-resourced communities in Hong Kong.

This year, the HK360Swim is back with two swims!
We will be providing live GPS tracking, for both swims, on a Windy based map.

Edie Hu will become the first woman to attempt to swim around Hong Kong Island since 1976. Edie is aiming to break the 1976 record, just over 17 hrs, by Australian Olympic swimmer Lynda McGill.   [ GPS Tracker ]
