Open Water Webinars supporting the RNLI

January 20, 2021

Swim Ireland has teamed up with the RNLI to offer a series of Open Water information and safety webinars, responding to the huge increase in new winter open water swimmers.

Our webinars are designed for all levels of open water swimmers, and feature opportunities to ask questions and get to know our experts.

You can find the latest schedule in our Open Water Swimming Calendar, or select the title that most intrigues you below.

Open Water Swimming Webinars

  • Weather & Waves with the RNLI
  • Tides & Currents with the RNLI
  • Dee's Experience - an evening with Antarctica and English Channel Swimmer Dee Newell
  • Ice Swimming with Tiffiny Quinn, Irish Ice Swimming Association Chair
  • Route Planning for Open Water Swimmers with Mo McCoy

Each webinar costs €5 to attend, with all proceeds going to support the RNLI's Volunteer Lifeboat Crews, who save lives at sea 365 days a year.

We also have two great Instagram live chats with Chris Bryan, and another with David Power, a swimmer who wrote a balanced, informative blog on his hypothermia experience.
