The Great Fjord Swim
13 October 2012
This area of outstanding beauty provides the backdrop, the waters of the Atlantic Ocean provide the mode of transport and you will provide the power – this is sure to be a brilliant challenge for participants of all abilities from beginners to regular tri-athletes! There are two distances to choose from – 2km or 750m. The 2km event involves boarding the Connemara Lady which will bring you out to the middle of the Fjord where you jump in and swim back to shore! With the 750m event you cross the Fjord – start in Co. Mayo and finish in Co. Galway! The 750m event is perfect for those who are only recent converts to the benefits of swimming while the 2km event is for those who like to regularly take the plunge, summer or winter! In October, water temperatures in the Fjord should be approx 13/14°, but wetsuits are compulsory nonetheless! And, whether you’re comfortable swimming breaststroke, freestyle or backstroke make sure you get your training in and get prepared for a truly special event….and don’t forget your goggles!
