Around 58 people were rescued from the sea after getting into difficulty during a charity swim off the coast of Southwold in Suffolk, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) said.
Lifeguards helped a further 27 people who were unable to continue swimming against the strong tide.
Simon Callaghan, helmsman at Southwold RNLI, said:
We were out on a regular Sunday exercise when we heard a swimmer calling for help. After that we had one of the busiest times I can remember, rescuing 58 people altogether.
Our volunteer crew, the lifeguards and other rescue teams involved all responded brilliantly and may have averted what could have become a much more serious incident.
The one remaining woman missing after the Southwold sea swim has been accounted for.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has said it is unclear how swimmers taking part in a charity race off the coast of Southwold in Suffolk got into trouble as weather conditions were fine but the water was "very cold".
Some swimmers were rescued by lifeboats while a number of people swam to the shore themselves, she added. There has been no reported fatalities the MCA spokeswoman said.
