The RNLI swim to Church Bay won’t go ahead on July 8th. For any swim this year, it’s more than likely that we would have 200+ people on the beach, so that means waiting until after July 20th, at least, to run any event.
As previously notified, we aren’t going to have a timed event this year. We have now also decided to try to tie in a swim event with the arrival of the new buoys (supposedly mid-July, based on latest updates from the supplier). That means (shock/horror), we won’t be having an event that goes from Myrtleville to Church Bay. Instead, we will have a more relaxed lap-of-the-buoys event. We will probably have a bucket for donations to the RNLI, but will not have pre-event entries.
Anyone who has entered through Nifty Entries for July 8 will receive an email in the coming week or so about their options on the entry fee paid.
We will probably schedule the event at a week’s notice, once the buoys are in and the weather is favourable.
For the swim to Church Bay – tune in next year 🙂
