The 6th Annual Courtmacsherry Lifeboat Swim takes place at Blind Strand, near the picturesque fishing village of Courtmacsherry.  The swim course starts on the beach and proceeds anti-clockwise around 2 markers.  Participants can choose between 1 lap(1.5K) or 2 laps(3K).  Swimmers who elect to do 2 laps will run/walk a short distance on the beach prior to starting lap 2.  The Courtmacsherry volunteers will provide soup and sandwiches for all participants and volunteers.  Our sponsors will provide the first 100 swimmers to register on the day with a surprise gift.  All proceeds for the swim go to the Courtmacsherry Lifeboat.  Swim Ireland membership is not required.
