70 swimmers are preparing to cross the Solent for charity.
The Wild West Solent Swim raises money for the West Wight Sports Centre charity, as well as nineteen other causes.
The event is organised by West Wight Sports Centre as a fund raiser for it's own charity, but 19 other charities are also being supported by the swimmers.
Each swimmer has a target of £250 to raise but many have already exceeded this. Organisers are optimistic that the swim will raise £25,000 in total.
Swimmers will set off Yarmouth in ribs and 7 in the morning and are transported across to Hurst where they will start the swim at twenty-to eight.
Swimmers are supported by a team of kayakers - 46 in total, together with a small fleet of safety and support boats and two of Freshwater's Lifeboats.
West Wight Sports Centre manager, Clare Griffin, told Isle of Wight Radio, 'It will be quite spectacular'.
'There will probably be 150 people either in the water or on the water.
'The oldest swimmer is 77, so it's quite an achievement to be swimming across the Solent at that age.
'When they do come ashore it's very emotional. There's lots of hugs and lots of tears'.
The fastest swimmers will reach Colwell around 8:15am on Sunday July 15th.
