We will have a Bag Drop at Blackrock for your dry gear, please bring a reasonable size bag, no suitcases and no plastic bags! You must drop the bag in the van at Blackrock and your gear will be brought to Grattan, It is YOUR responsibility to place your own bag in the van.

Please bring warm clothes and maybe a wooly hat for post swim, although the forecast is good for the evening, you will get cold after the swim.

We suggest that you Car Pool so park one car at Grattan and one at Blackrock as there will be no shuttle to bring people up the prom back to Blackrock after the swim. If not car pooling, we suggest parking in the Prom Car Park and walking before and after the event to swim start/ from swim finish.

We are looking forward to a great event tomorrow night, remember it’s not a race, but is a chance to set an end of season PB across your chosen swim distance. If you have any queries please contact
