It’s just a week until the big event and the sea is colder than other years. If you are swimming in the RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay swim on June 20th, you need to be in the sea a few times in the next week. The sea temperature next Thursday may be around 12C. It’s not likely to be much more, although the forecast for next week is warming up.
If you have not been swimming much, think about wearing a wetsuit on the night or get in every day until the swim! Think of safety first and last. Don’t take a chance.
