Courtmacsherry Lifeboat Swim

The 8th Annual Courtmacsherry Lifeboat Swim takes place at Blind Strand, near the picturesque fishing village of Courtmacsherry at 2.00pm on Saturday, July 21st. Courtmacsherry is a 45 minute drive from the Bandon Road roundabout. The swim will be well sign posted from the village. Please leave plenty of time for parking and registration. The safety briefing will take place at 1.30pm.

The swim course starts on the beach at Blind Strand and proceeds anti-clockwise around 2 markers.

Participants can choose between 1 lap(1.5K) or 2 laps(3K). Swimmers who elect to do 2 laps will run/walk a short distance on the beach prior to starting lap 2.

The Courtmacsherry volunteers will provide soup and sandwiches for all participants and volunteers. This year I am delighted to announce that IT@Cork Skillnet will continue to be our sponsors for the event. IT@Cork Skillnet will be providing the first 200 swimmers registered with a generous goody bag. Really nice gifts inside each one.


We have also secured the improved parking again this year.

Registration this year is again via Active. https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=52686051
and closes on Thursday, July 19th at 11.00pm. Entry fee is €15 online. If the event maximum of 250 swimmers is not met, I will accept some entries on the day. On the day fee will be €25 and all proceeds go to the Courtmacsherry Lifeboat. Swim Ireland membership is not mandatory for this swim.

If you know of anyone who would like to volunteer to kayak, please have them contact me directly.

Any further updates will be posted on the event web page and emailed to those registered.

I look forward to seeing you for a fun swim on July 21st.
