Every year, an award is given after the Sandycove Challenge to the person who people feel has contributed to the spirit and ethos of open water swimming at Sandycove that year.
(more details here: https://sandycoveswimmers.com/achievements/#MikeHarris)
The selection criteria may not just include swimming, but also other equally important swimming skills – culinary skills, amazing volunteering, endless kayaking or just being a friendly face and having a kind word for new swimmers…
If you feel you know of someone who merits this award in 2019 please drop an email to the Sandycove membership secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday next, September 25th. In your email, please include the reasons why you feel that this person deserves the award (the selection committee will use these reasons to help in their decision).
