The RNLI’s Baltimore Swim is part of MAYDAY. The event is a 1 nautical mile (2km) open-water swim from Sherkin Island Pier to Baltimore Pier and offers a unique opportunity to swim with 7 Ocean Challenger Steve Redmond. The swim will cross this famous channel under controlled circumstances. Numbers are limited so early entry is recommended.

Stephen Redmond is from Ballydehob, Co. Cork. He is a former rugby player and triathlete who is currently one of the few adventurers in the world on track to achieve the Oceans Seven, which is especially remarkable given the training facilities near his home town. He has also become the first person to swim around the treacherous Fastnet Rock.

Swimmers must be able to swim 1 mile in open-water conditions, be medically fit and agree to raise a minimum of €50 for the RNLI. You will be required to provide and wear a wetsuit. Swim caps will be provided and must be worn. Minimum age for entry to this event is 14 years.

MAYDAY is proudly supported by John West.
