The World Series is the main summer events of the club comprising of 8 swims and 4 BBQs.

Each race is maybe up of 4,different groups of all abilities. From A Elite, B Advanced C Casual / Improvers and D Newcomers.

Each swimmer then receives a handicap relevant to their ability. There are points and prizes awarded for each race and at the end of the year , we have The Swimmer of the= Year as well as Group winners and Runners up .

Round 1 of The World Series took place last Tuesday evening from The Slip. Sponsored by Hugh Culloty Expert it was a short 650 metre swim just to get everybody re acclimatised .

The ever popular and growing series saw over 120 swimmers taking part . Winners will be announced in next weeks notes .

Membership is now due and remains at a very competitive 50 euro for a competing member or just 20 euro for a casual member .

The fantastic weather we have had over the last few weeks has seen the water temperature rise to a very comfortable 14c . Please swim sensibly at all times and never swim alone .
