Subject: [myrtleville-swimmers] Two open water seminars: Jan 11th Alcatraz and Jan 18th Cold Water Swimming and Hypothermia
To:

Location :   The Edge Sports…..Kinsale Road roundabout…upstairs
Starts 6:30 pm – and runs just over 1 hour
Jan 11th Alcatraz
This has the reputation as UNswimmable…thanks to lore and a few movies.  In fact severla thousand swim it annually.
Distance is just a bit further than a lap of Sandycove.
In 2006 a group of 93 swimmers from Ireland took it on – with 100% success
Come and see a short presentation and ask some questions.
Please email me if you are interested in coming.
Jan 18th Cold Water Swimming and Hypothermia
The timing will be interesting as more than 10 local swimmers will be headed to the cold water champions in London the next week to compete in 3 to 5C waters…with several trying to join the Internatiuonal Ice Swimming Association by logging a 1 mile swim in an open air lido.
How do the locals in togs do it?
What do they think?
How does one prepare?
How can I shed my wetsuit in the summer months?
I also have a prepared presentation on hypothermia which will give you real facts

Please email me if you are interested in coming.
