Loch Hyne Swim Results and Photos

The final official swim of our 2011 Munster OW season took place on Sunday, October 23rd. It was due to be a swim from Sherkin Island into Baltimore, but due to weather conditions on the day, it had to be moved to Loch Hyne instead. We swam one lap around the lake, to complete a distance of about 2,000m. Regardless of the bad weather and change of venue, we had a fantastic turn-out on the day, with 41 swimmers completing the course. Conditions were reasonably challenging-there was quite a bit of chop to contend with close to the slip, but as we got closer to the island it was a bit more sheltered. And I think everyone agreed that the water temperature was reasonably warm for the end of October! It was a great swim to end the season.

As always, thanks to our volunteers. It wasn’t a nice day to be hanging around, so much credit is due to everyone who helped with safety and timekeeping. We really appreciate it 🙂

The swim results and some photos taken by Kevin Power are posted below.
