RNLI Swim participants – prepare

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.

New Swimmers evening – June 11th: 19:30 – Help wanted

June 11th, 7.30pm: Eilis Burns will be bringing a group of new open water swimmers to Myrtleville on Tuesday, June 11th at 19:30.

Any of the regular Myrtleville swimmers who can be around that evening to give any help would be appreciated. We need swimmers used to the sea to join the group for the swim and watch out for anyone who needs some support.  Also, any kayakers or SUPs available would be very welcome.

Please come down if you can. Remember what your own first swim was like and help out:-)
