The Irish Long Distance Swimming Association with Camlough Lake Water Festival hosted the 1.5K ‘Round the Rock‘ sea swim in late June in Warrenpoint Co. Down.

There was sunshine on shore, but a cool offshore breeze, choppy waters and a tepid 17ºC water temperature met almost 100 swimmers for the event that is among many exciting and challenging swims on the 2014 open water swimming calendar,” reported Jacqueline Galway. “Thanks to the water safety team – boat crew – lifeguards – kayakers, registration team, support crews, The Whistledown Hotel, and to all for their support.”
