From Ray McArdle:
The 4th Annual Courtmacsherry Lifeboat Swim takes place at Blind Strand, near the picturesque fishing village of Courtmacsherry at 4.00pm on Saturday, August 23rd. Courtmacsherry is a 45 minute drive from the Bandon Road roundabout. The swim will be well sign posted from the village. Please leave plenty of time for parking and registration. The safety briefing will take place at 3.45pm.
The swim course starts on the beach at Blind Strand and proceeds anti-clockwise around 2 markers.
Participants can choose between 1 lap(1.5K) or 2 laps(3K). Swimmers who elect to do 2 laps will run/walk a short distance on the beach prior to starting lap 2.
The Courtmacsherry volunteers will provide soup and sandwiches for all participants and volunteers. Our sponsors, Trend Micro, will provide the first 100 swimmers to register on the day with a Silicone swim cap.
All proceeds from the swim go to the Courtmacsherry Lifeboat and Swim Ireland membership is not required.
Registration this year is online via Active and closes on Wednesday, August 20th.
If you know of anyone who would like to volunteer to kayak, please have them contact me directly.
Any further updates will be posted on the event web page and emailed to those registered.
I look forward to seeing you for a fun swim on August 23rd.
