Yesterday evening I took part in the Tralee Triathlon Club Slip to Shore Swim (it was actually shore to slip due to tide direction, but that doesn’t roll off the tongue as well), where experienced swimmers were partnered up with newer swimmers who were doing their first longer distance sea swim. The evening was a great success, with lots of club members doing the full 750m distance for the first time. Well done to organiser Joanne, and to all the kayakers and helpers, and especially to those who conquered their fears and completed their first full distance swim. We had great fun. The club is running an open water transition workshop with Triathlon Ireland today.
