It’s that time of year again, mark your Calendars for the Turkey Swim Dates 2016! Details & Dates below…
Remember this is open to everyone who swims regularly in the Sea, no matter where they normally swim! This is not exclusive to any club or group of swimmers, If you want to swim on a date, come along and join in, no matter where the swim is on! The Sandycove times are based on tides and are the same as the Sandycove swim calendar. At Myrtleville we can swim on any tide so there is a mix of Morning/afternoon times to try and suit all people days. There is a swim on every weekend to give people options. There is nothing too early, swimming after a party night out is not pleasant!.Tradition continues with last Swim in Sandycove, it’s where this all started many years ago, we’ve just expanded it to every weekend now.
How the ‘Turkey Swims’ work:
** Swimmers Sign In and pay €2 on the day of Swim. (someone will have a money box and signin sheet – probably Carol, Angela or Eoin).
** Money Collected goes towards Prizes drawn on 17th/18th Dec at both locations, These include Butcher Vouchers (instead of an actual Turkey) and many other spot prizes (The Edge Vouchers / wine / chocolates / selection boxes etc!). We had over 30 prizes last year.
** Don’t Forget to Pay and Sign In, if you don’t you are not in the draw!
** Make however many swims you can.
** The more you swim, the more times you are entered for the ‘draw’.
** A Swim Dosn’t have to be a full lap of Sandycove, or 30mins, no min/max time or distance, turn up and do what you feel comfortable with on the day. Togs or Wetsuit, up to you, swim safe, stay warm, swim with similar speed buddies. Turning Up for Fresh Air and a chat also counts, sometimes that’s what we need.
** The Swimmers Turkey Series is a Social Event for Cork OW swimming in the Winter. Remember to bring your Flasks for after the swims, Nibbles are always welcome too!, there is talk of some people bringing cake! Have Fun and Enjoy
