Kidd Rapinet Solicitors in HIgh Wycombe has once again sponsored the historic Boulters to Bray Swim which took place on Saturday 2nd July 2022. Tom Dean and Maggie Taylor (who won the swim in 1964) were in attendance to hand out the awards with our own Managing Partner/Private Client Solicitor, Gurvinder Sehra.
The Boulter’s to Bray Swim is one of the oldest open water swimming events, with a history dating back to the 19th century. The course of the original swim is 2.8km downstream, starting at Ray Mill Island in the shadow of Cliveden House. Swimmers pass under two Grade 1 listed bridges – the 18th century Maidenhead Bridge and Brunel’s world-famous ‘Sounding Arch’ railway bridge – before finishing opposite the Roux brothers’ Waterside Inn at Bray.
The Boulter’s Mile (actually 0.9 miles – it’s like a baker’s dozen) was introduced in 2015. Taking place alongside the 2.8km version it finishes just downstream of the Sounding Arch.
