4th Annual Courtmacsherry Lifeboat swim

Write-up by Ray McArdle

1Blind Strand

On Saturday, August 23rd at 4.00pm, 93 swimmers took to the water for the 4th annual Courtmacsherry Lifeboat swim.  53 of these completed the longer 3K swim with the other 40 completing 1.5K.

The swim was supported by 9 kayakers, 3 support boats and the Lifeboat.  We also had volunteers assist with registration, time keeping, photographs, markers, support boats, liaising with the Lifeboat team and parking.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered.  The swim could not happen without them.

All 960 photos are available here.

And they're off!And they’re off!

After the swim the RNLI volunteers had prepared warm welcoming soup and sandwiches for the swimmers (which they devoured).  The ‘Great Courtmac Bake Off’ also took place with some delicious treats, which lasted less than 60 seconds.

Cake time!Yummy!

The 3K swim was dominated, again, by the ladies.  Charlotte Reid from Aer Lingus S.C. was first home in togs and Nancy Edmead from Clonakilty Penguins dominating the wetsuit category in a new course record.

Finally, big thank you to our sponsors Trend Micro, for the hats, which were appreciated by all.
