Swim Times will be displayed on the www.openwaterswimmer.ie and our facebook page 24 hours after the swims and posted on our information boards at the lake soon after the race. Plus a race clock will be in position for you to read.
We aim to provide a safe and fun environment for everyone to enjoy the freedom and challenge of open water swimming. If for any reason you experience difficulties while taking part in our swims, roll onto your back an raise a hand in the air. The buoyancy of your wetsuit will keep you afloat and you will be rescued immediately by one of our kayak safety crew or our fast rescue boat, and transferred to the shore.
Brightly coloured swim caps to aid visibility while in the water are supplied and must be worn.
Kayak Safety Marshals are in place all around the course
Fast Rescue Boat is on scene manned by a qualified beach lifeguard.
Trained Aquatic Rescue & First Aid staff are on site for every event
Wetsuits are advised.
If you have an impediment or medical ailment that the saftey staff should know of you must inform them prior to the swim start.
