Organising Cold Water Swims and Dips
Tuesday 14 Feb 2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Do you run charity events?
Have you ever organised an open water swim/dip event?
If so, we would love to speak to you! Please join us on February 14th at 12pm for a one hour lunch and learn Webinar on cold water swims and dips. This webinar will be delivered by the RNLI and Water Safety Ireland, supported by the Irish Coast Guard, HM Coastguard, Swim Ireland and Swim Ulster.
During this 1 hour session we will discuss the best practices for safe open water swimming and how to reduce the risk of drowning or serious incidents at your events. We can advise you on preparation and event planning which prioritises the safety of your participants. There will be a Q&A session included at the end of the webinar. This is a great opportunity to understand what supports are available for charities who run, or are planning to run, an open water event.
