    They won't allow wetsuits, the thing is, the water will be absolutely freezing. Good idea Annette to meet at the changing shelter. Siobhan

    Hi seals, I've just got the final info from the organisers. It sounds like there will be a very big crowd at this. I am wondering if we should gather a little back from the swimming area to make sure we meet up. Any suggestions??? John

    November 30

    • Annette

      Hi John, we could meet at the changing shelter at Sandycove beach.

  • Annette

    Hi Seals, I have changed the meet up time to 12.30, to allow time for people to sign in. There will be a separate sign-in table for Groups. Please register at the group table so we all get the same colour wristband. The 'plunge' will happen in groups of 50, so it would be good if we were all in the same group.

    Hi all, Just a reminder that you need to register on the Special Olympics website (the link is in the meetup description) in advance of the swim. Also, download the waiver form. And bring warm clothes!
