Saint Patrick Day's Fin Swim

  • Dalkey Island Green Road Dublin, Dublin Ireland (map)

Paddy’s day swim to be held in Collimore harbour, Dalkey.

 Registration is starting from 9am in Collimore harbour Monday 17th -  swimmers will be in the water with boat cover from 9.30 through 12.30.   
LW is 5.18 North wall +1 into Springs. We will be hitting the water mid tide filling - 
there will be a brief both group and  individual on the morning by the shore marshell -
Sponsorship can be done individually. we do not have an event sponsorship card.
Suggestion is to swim out from the harbour to north end and swim south on the inside of the island, around the south end rock and north. when you come around the inside again swim to the island slip and then cut back across to Collimore.   Tide will be slacking off by then.  People are free to swim their own routes, but the organisers do not want to spread the cover boats out too much.
4 cover boats on the day.
Voluntary donation / registration  of €10pp all proceeds to RNLI. collection buckets will be on the tea tables. 
First aid, defib and additional equipment will be available on shore.
