Entries are now open for the RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay Swim on June 16th, 2022 at 19.00. Please note – if you’re new to swimming, do make sure you have sufficient training done before you consider entering for this swim 🙂
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?
