The 2019 RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay 2km open water swim will take place on Thursday, June 20th, 2019 at 7.00 pm.
Entries will be online and will open early in 2019.
If for safety reasons June 20th has to be postponed, the back-up date is Thursday, July 4th, 2019 at 6.30 pm. If this date can not proceed, there will be no event in 2019 and all entry fees will be donated to the RNLI.
Trendsetters, that’s what we are down Myrtleville way. I read Karl Henry in the Indo today…..“Get your togs on and jump in. Swimming in the sea is back in vogue”.
Just what we dreamed of – to be “in vogue”. Often we’ve marvelled as our style influencers
shiver down the slip sashay down the catwalk in Myrtleville on a February morning with the crowds ooohing and aaahing about the latest look and how to “work it” – all the mnás gasping “oh, Denis/Daniel/Pat, you’re sooooo voguey with your big, BIG, orange float”. Swoon, like – swoon. Style and In-Vogue-ness, that’s what sea swimming is all about for us.
All vogued-up activities have to have a Season of course – Henley, Ascot, that kind of thing. We’ve got the RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay Swim on July 3rd, where fashions will be flaunted, style icons will point the way to the latest trends in togs and goggles and there’ll be a general level of vogueidity that even Anna Wintour couldn’t keep up with.
Influencers worth following – two men who never realised what trendsetters they were- or how much they were “in vogue”. Will be signing autographs at the RNLI swim.
Don’t miss the most voguey event of the year – enter now on Active. It’ll be very much like this video, I’d say. Any chance of a flash-mob, Joanne?
