The 7th 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, IT@Cork Skillnet, 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.
