Atlantic Lifeboat Swim

ABOUT THE RACE

Started in 2018, the swim is currently in its 6th year. The swim was created as a fundraising swim to give back to the water based services that serve us here in Galway Bay. While as swimmers we hope we never need their services, we know without a doubt that if the day come where we, or our fellow swimmer need them, they’ll be there for us. 2023 was our best fundraising year, raising over 10,000 euro. This event is totally voluntary with all the proceeds this year again going to the RNLI & OMCSU. We have been very fortunate in all previous years, that any costs associated with running the events has been covered by local businesses to ensure all proceeds could go directly to these fantastic organizations. We would like to complement Galway Co. Co. for their continued support of this event. To ensure the safety of all involved, we shutdown Renville Pier to all cars and boat launches, which would not be possible without approval from Galway Co.
