The RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay (entrance to Cork Harbour) 2km open water sea swim takes place on Sunday 16th June at 10:00am on an incoming tide.
This forms part of the national open water swim schedule and is a challenging 2km swim in open water conditions from Myrtleville Beach to Church Bay, with majestic views of Roches Point lighthouse, the entrance to Cork Harbour and the odd oil tanker or navy vessel passing by. If on the day the safety officers deem the sea and or weather conditions not safe ; an alternative route from Fort Camden to the lifeboat station in Crosshaven will be considered.
Entry criteria will apply and will be finalised closer to the date. Suffice to say, doing 1,500m in the pool at the moment would be a good idea!
