Lee Swim 2013

Saturday marked the day for this year’s ‘Vibes and Scribes’ Lee Swim, one of Ireland’s biggest annual open water events. It was a beautiful day for the swim and there was a record entry of over 420 swimmers with 380 swimming on the day. It was a huge challenge to organise that many swimmers but I think that everyone would agree that the organisers did an absolutely fantastic job at getting everyone into and out of the water quickly and efficiently. Well done to everyone involved. And thank you to all swimmers for your cooperation in following all of the instructions!

Lots of bridges!

And for those of you who completed the Lee and are looking for another similar distance challenge…we have ‘The Edge Sports’ Sandycove Island Challenge coming up on September 7th! More information can be found on the Cork Masters website and the Facebook page. Entries are open here. Hope to see you all again then!

  1. Thanks a mill Lisa for this excellent write-up. Let’s hope the Edge Sports Sandycove Challenge will reach dizzying numbers of entry as well. Alas, I won’t be amongst them – on family business in Germany on the day – but I will be with you in spirit. Ossi
