Jamestown Weir to Drumsna Quay: Drumsna Quay, Drumsna, Ireland
Registration (for those not already registered) for the event will take place between 12.30 and 2pm at Drumsna Quay and from 2pm to 2.25pm at Jamestown Weir.
The event will start from Jamestown Weir at 2.30pm sharp.
The swim is open to all levels of swimmers, there is a nice flow on the river from Jamestown to Drumsna so this is not a hard swim. It is summer time, however, as its Ireland, a light tri-suit or wet-suit is encouraged as part your kit.
As safety is of primary importance, the river will be actively patrolled by multiple safety boats. If at any point, assistance is needed, raise your hand and wave to any safety boat and they will quickly provide assistance. Civil Defence ambulance service will also be on hand during the day.
Parking is widely available at both locations.
This is a family friendly event, which provides everyone with a safe and secure opportunity to experience open water swimming (or drifting) and to see parts of the country from a more relaxed vantage point. With this in mind, please obey the instructions of all stewards and also remember to keep Ireland beautiful and dispose of any rubbish in any of the bins provided
