Greetings, swimmers! There’s now only one week left to put your name in for this year’s MDMS. Entries will close at midnight next Wednesday (12 June). Unfortunately, no late entries can be accepted.
We have spaces for volunteers also! We are looking for onshore spotters who will be positioned at strategic points along the bank, kayakers (of Level 2 ability) and timekeepers. If you can fulfill any of these roles, get in contact with us and we’ll find some job for you!
Conditions are excellent on the River Blackwater at the moment – water temperatures of about 15ºC – and we hope that it will continue until the day of the event. We look forward to seeing you all then…
We are very happy to announce that entries are now open for this year’s Martin Duggan Memorial Swim which will take place on Friday, 14 June. The swim will take place at the usual location, Fermoy Rowing Club on the River Blackwater, and will be 2 km in length. If you want to enter you can do so by following the instructions below (more information is available on our Entry page). Registration will be open from 17:30 to 18:30 on the day and the swim will start at 19:30. Keep an eye on this blog for updates…
