If we can make this a success we are going to try a monthly winter league. So email your name before you start. (Mail on original page, please visit)
And you don’t have to be in Ireland. Sandycove is worldwide. Join in..
Just a reminder of the rules:
  • Swim as far as you can in a hour…EXACTLY.
  • 1 hour (if you are halfway through a length when the time is up, count to last complete length)
  • Only 3 attempts in  the month (even if you are doing this every day)
  • If changing strokes you can only change to a slower stroke: front crawl to anything else, ‘fly to breaststroke or backstroke, backstroke to breastbreast, breaststroke to drowning.
  • THE CLOCK DOES NOT STOP (drinking, toilet breaks etc)
  • One swimmer only. NO DRAFTING.
