With Sandycove Island Swim Club

An epic 7 km swim around the most iconic urban island in Ireland. This will be a very technical swim considering the following factors: tide height, flow from the dam, start time versus high water and swimmer’s speed, over the shallows and weir with current behind, under bridges with little clearance, mid channel down and hugging banks up, fast feed/s, and swimming up and over the last shallow weirs. This is the fourth year of the Around Cork Island Swim, and builds on the success of the ‘Vibes & Scribes’ Lee Swim.
