The tide is later this week, which means we get a lie-in this Saturday; it also means that we will be out of our depth so no walking this time. We've got some new members in the group this week, will they take the challenge?
This Saturday we are going to Seapoint for a swim followed by a cuppa in a local café. This is a great event if you are a regular swimmer, a newbie or anything in between.
If you are joining us for the first time, check out the Discussions section for tips on getting ready as well as safety advice.
Wear a bikini, wetsuit or lather yourself up in goose fat - whatever is needed to stay comfortable at this time of year. Some of us will swim lengths, others will just dip in and then out.
And remember, whilst we do look out for one another the swim is at your own risk.
After the swim
After the swim we pick a local café, in Blackrock or Monkstown usually, for copious amounts of tea as well as some food and plenty of chat. Join now
If you have not met the group yet, we are a friendly bunch and you can meet on the day or make yourself known beforehand and one of us will make sure you get to meet everyone else.
I’m Francois and you can reach me on [masked].
