This is just a preliminary notice for one of the most popular events of the year, the night swim around Sandycove. We will post a more detailed notice with terms and conditions a little bit closer to the date. The date we are looking at is Thursday 3rd October. This is not an event for people to attempt their first circuit of the island or for anyone who is a bit insecure going round in daylight. We will use a buddy system and have glow sticks for every swimmer. Given the right conditions it can be and usually is a magical evening. Safety is our prime concern and there is a degree of personal responsibility involved in swimming round the island in daylight so added responsibility in deciding to go round at night. As mentioned above there will be a more detailed post closer to the date, just put a red circle in your calendar.
