We had really beautiful conditions for the groups swimming at 7.15 and 8.15 on Saturday morning. With a NW wind forecast for most of the week, fingers crossed we should have more of the same.
While us mere mortals were enjoying the calm, Finbarr Hedderman took a weekend off from lapping Sandycove and did the short paddle from Ireland to Scotland in a mere 12hrs and 24mins. There was a brief suspicion he was going to break sweat, but the moment passed and he powered on and home. Well done, Mr. Finbarr.
