** DUE TO HIGH WINDS FORECAST THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED TO JULY 13TH, 7PM **
The 2017 RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay (entrance to Cork Harbour) 2km open water sea swim will take place on Saturday, June 10th at 5.00pm as part of Cork Harbour Festival.
Participants must have submitted their entry online. Entries will not be accepted on the day.
This is a challenging 2km swim in open water conditions from Myrtleville Beach to Church Bay, with majestic views of Roches Point lighthouse, the entrance to Cork Harbour and the odd cruise liner, oil tanker or navy vessel passing by.
All participants must be able to verify a minimum of one 1,500m open water swim in 2017. We strongly recommend you have done a longer distance – or several 1,500m swims. This is a fantastic, but challenging swim and not to be attempted without proper preparation. If you want to practice, come to Myrtleville any Monday night at 6pm (from Monday March 27, 2017) or Saturday mornings at 09.00 – all year round. There’s no excuse not to get some practice sessions in!
