There is a 3 k swim race this Sunday in Wicklow, starting in the Harbour, then turning left at the end of the pier and heading up the Murrough. and finishing on the beach. The swim is timed to coincide with a strong tide going North, so
it swims more like a 2 k swim.
All proceeds from the entries go to Wicklow RNLI so is a very worthy cause. The entry cost is 25 Euro.
The swim is a Swim Ireland event so a One Day License is required from non SI members to cover cost of insurance. This can be purchased for 10 Euro .
