Paddling in the Park.

Finbarr Hedderman’s Paddle in the Park went off really well on Friday night.  Great idea to make use of the river closer in to the city.

Don’t forget the next event – the Bulman swim, this Saturday, May 30th.  Click here for entry details.  It’s another qualifying swim for the RNLI Myrtleville-Church Bay swim on July 4th!

Angela – such an inscrutable face. So hard to tell what might she be thinking. (Back off now, Gordon, now, now….)

On Saturday, Gary Frost had great plans and organised a 2km or 4km swim.  Really, he organised everything and rounded up the crowds.  Didn’t quite go to plan.

Gary’s crowds…..not even a Gary.

It could be that he got lost.  Some places are very hard to find.  Gary recently drove all over Crosshaven without seeing this small little place.

Very easy to miss - such a small place.

Get entered for The Bulman swim.
