16c water & no stopping The Hat

Heard from a triathlete at the practice swims for TriMonkstown at the weekend – “Do you have to wear a wetsuit?  I’m roasted.”  The water is headed for 17c (16.6c at the moment) and it’s a joy!  Fantastic swims at the weekend with huge crowds in Garnish and still enough swimmers around for groups going out from Myrtleville, Monkstown and Mallorca.

Lough Hyne…..A very fit looking Steve Redmond crowns all his achievements with a new Hat.

The Hat made one more very important stop yesterday, but I’ll have to post that one separately.  Worth waiting for.

Enjoy the fantastic weather, and SWIM SAFE.  I’m sure there will be lots of extra swims for different groups, but the normal ones of 6.00pm today, 06.15 Tuesday and Friday mornings and Saturday at 08.15 will be on in Myrtleville.  The only downside to the weather is that getting close to the beach any evening will be difficult.  It’s going to be mobbed.
