What a Wonderful day it was as the SUN was absolutely focused on heating up the sea at SEAPOINT on Friday evening June 20th as the ANNUAL Templeogue SEA SWIM drew a HUGE crowd of athletes and sea swimmers from Leinster for both the Mens & Womens Races and a strong young crew from the Club itself competed in a NOVICE event to experience SEA swimming.

Over 150 Men & 90 Women participated in the EVENT started and finished a tough 1600M course in swelling Seas but the beautiful weather meant that the event was a great success.


The event winners were awarded their fabulous trophies in an after event presentation in Monkstown.
