One More Weekend for Turkey Swims 2013


Another Weekend of Turkey Swimming done, Well I say weekend, Saturday was a complete washout, but Sunday was a bit more swimable!. 10 brave swimmers took to the ‘lumpy’ waters on Sunday for a dip, water temps still reading between 9.9-10.2 deg. 🙂  Welcome back Mags & Paul, and Bye Bye to Anne and Denis (off to the sunshine!)

Saturday 14th Dec. A bit too lumpy to swim 'Says Finbarr'!.

First Corner was still Challenging on Sunday!

So now there is only one weekend Left for the Turkey Swim Series 2013, Next Saturday (21st Dec) at 10:30am the swim is at Myrtleville, Bernard has promised Mulled wine and Pies for afterwards! 🙂 and then on Sunday (22nd Dec) at 10:30am the last swim is back in Sandycove. This is the BIG day!, we’ll do the prize draw for the ‘turkey’ (ie – butcher vouchers), and all the other lovely prizes we have accumulated. Lets hope the weather co-operates for us at Sandycove for the Draw.

Finally, a reminder that Sandycove Swimmers have a Facebook page, very handy to ask who is swimming when, ask about temps etc. Just a general page for swimmers to contact people all at once: (this is a group page, so you will need to be signed up to Facebook to view messages/comments).

See you next weekend, remember the cold will burn off calories, so you can totally justify eating more chocolates, cakes, pies etc… 🙂
