Masters swimming galas are for adults only, over 19yrs. They are relaxed, as competitive as you want them to be! and open to all ages, abilities, levels, etc.. there are a few basic rules to abide by, but nothing you can’t be told about on the day. Sandycove Island SC is not exclusively for Open Water Swimmers, many members swim at Masters pool galas to stay motivated during the winter months. When you pay your annual membership to SISC it allows you to enter pool galas along with the Swim Ireland covered Open Water events.
