Tomorrow I am off to the Global Open Water Swimming Conference in Cork.
A criminally early flight from Stansted should get me there in plenty of time for talks, beers, and hopefully meeting many of the people I have spent the last year reading about. Many of the greats of Open Water Swimming will be there!
Before flying back home on Sunday evening, there is an excursion to Sandycove Island for one (or more depending on the state of the hangover) lap(s) of the Island. Sandycove is an Open Water Swimming Mecca – I look forward to my own little pilgrimage! The water is likely to be still pleasant, somewhere in the 14C (57F) range.
