The 90th edition of the annual Dun Laoghaire Harbour Swim is scheduled for the morning of Sunday 16 August.
Additionally, boats moored in the East Bight are not to operate their engines while the event is ongoing.
The men’s race is scheduled to start at approximately 9.15am, with the women’s race an hour later. Both will have the same course and will last around 50 minutes each. High water is forecast for 10.30am.
The course starts at the RStGYC slipway, and swimmers will head directly to the East Pier Lighthouse, then turn parallel to the East Pier inside the moorings to the Bandstand.
The course then turns again towards the head of Carlisle Pier, then turns to a straight line finish back at the slipway.
For further safety, all other harbour users are to comply with any instructions given by the attending race marshals. The marshals will be in guard boats or canoes that accompany the swimmers and will wear high visibility jackets for ease of identification.
