With Monday nights finished, Saturday at 8.15am is the only set time for the week during the Winter. Despite the worst possible forecast, we had a great turn-out on this weekend, with seventeen swimmers venturing in.
Maeve Mulcahy took this picture, showing that swimming to the Dutchman wasn’t advisable, but we had a “calm bit” of 300 metres that was enjoyable.
We checked afterwards and were sure everyone had got out safely, so it was a bit of a shock to see a few extras were washed up and displayed on the wall of Jimmy Long’s:
There’s a night out open to all swimmers on Saturday next at 8pm in Bunny’s and Turkey Swims on Saturday and Sunday in Sandycove. Sea swimming is a year-round sport!
