Grand stretch in the evenings, so it’s time to start planning for the big event.
The 2020 RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay 2km open water sea swim will take place on Wednesday July 8th, 2020 at 7.00 pm. Mark your diaries!
Entries will open in March and will close at 14.00 on Tuesday, July 7th, 2020.
Entries flowing in nicely for June 20th. Be part of this fantastic swim. If you haven’t done 1500m in the sea yet this year, get it done over the long weekend and get your entry in.

Entries are now open for the RNLI swim on Thursday, June 20th at 7.00PM.
It’s a great time of year for planning which swims to enter over the Summer. Some are taking entries already and Carol Cashell is putting the Munster OWS Calendar together (thanks, Carol 🙂 ).
While you’re making your plans, give some thought to helping out at one of the swims. Most swims are very glad to get offers of help – registering, timekeeping, parking, kayaking, boat-support – the list of jobs goes on and as numbers of entrants rise, more volunteers are needed.
Here’s a blast of Canned Heat to get you in the volunteering mood.

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?
A maximum of 300 entries are going to be accepted for the swim on July 3rd.
We are currently heading past 200 (lots of people were busy at the weekend 🙂 ) so while there’s still space, it will disappear as the weather improves. If you’re planning to swim – enter early.
Entries online via Active only. Enter here.
We can’t promise there will be dolphins that evening, but they’re available as training partners in Myrtleville at the moment – as caught by Siobhan Russell yesterday.
The Myrtleville Showers barbershop quartet, led by Antoinette “Madonna” Wilson will also be performing on the evening. Not to be missed.
Get entered if you don’t want to miss out.
