Inchydoney Summer Swim.

By | July 22, 2019

On Sunday the 14th of July, the annual Inchydoney Summer Swim took place on Inchydoney beach just outside Clonakilty. The swim was limited to 200 swimmers across three distances, 500m 1.5km and 3km. Blackwater Triathlon Club had members participating in all three distances. First up was John Hennessy in the 500m swim which he completed in 13.5min. Following the 500m swim there was a mass start for both the 1.5km and 3km. Kevin O’Farrell and Harry Feeney completed the 1.5km in 18th and 30th places of 81 swimmers in the category. Jim Crowley, Mary Collins and Ashleigh Byrne O’Brien all navigated the 3km swim safely coming home in respectable times. All members enjoyed the swim and would highly recommend it.
