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 🙂
Thanks to all of the volunteers and sponsors who helped to make the event possible – the RNLI, Coast Guard, Gardai, Order of Malta, Funkytown, Sports Timing, Centra Crosshaven, Port of Cork, Cronin’s Pub, The Edge Sports and numerous fantastic individuals without whom nothing could run. All of your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. Thanks again to you all.
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.
