RNLI Myrtleville to Churchbay Race 2015, (Cork), Ireland

Saturday, 4 July, 2015 - 18:00


The 2015 RNLI Myrtleville to Church Bay (entrance to Cork Harbour) 2km open water sea swim will take place on Saturday July 4th, 2015 at 6.00pm. 

This is a challenging 2km swim in open water conditions from Myrtleville Beach to Church Bay, with majestic views of Roches Point lighthouse, the entrance to Cork Harbour and the odd cruise liner, oil tanker or navy vessel passing by.

All participants must be able to verify a minimum of one 1,500m open water swim in 2015. We strongly recommend you have done a longer distance - or several 1,500m swims. This is a fantastic, but challenging swim and not to be attempted without proper preparation.  If you want to practice, come to Myrtleville any Monday night at 6pm (from Monday March 30, 2015) or Saturday mornings at 08.15.

There’s no excuse not to get some practice sessions in!  Check the swim times on this site each month.
