Robben Island's Freedom Swim

Robben Island’s Freedom Swim

Since Henry Hooper became the first man to complete the swim from Robben Island to the old Cape Town harbour in 1909, less than 300 people have made the crossing. On 27 April, South Africa's Freedom Day, up to 100 swimmers will brave the waters between the former penal colony and Bloubergstrand.
