Saturday is the new Monday

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.

Myrtleville – Saturday, November 2, 2013: a bit of texture on the water….

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:

Myrtleville Slimmers – 12.2C in the water, but this crowd felt the cold…..

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!
