Postal Swim 2012 800m and/or 1500m

The objective is to encourage Swim Ireland Masters swimmers to participate in the 800 m and 1500 m events, which are often difficult to fit into a normal gala programme. This postal swim enables swimmers to swim these distances in their local pool during Club sessions without having to travel out of the island of Ireland, to obtain an official time and to compare with other swimmers from other Clubs.

Postal swims can take place at any 25m (S/C) or 50m (L/C) Pool in Ireland. No time correction will be made for long course swims.
All entries must be sent by 7th September 2012 to Jeff Phillips
Contact your club administrator for entry forms.

Provincial Masters Records released

The  Swim Ireland Masters Committee have introduced Provincial Masters records.
Provisional listings can be found on the website ""

The criteria for being listed as a provincial record holder in this initial list is as follows:
• Current Irish records, set swimming with an Irish club;
• Recorded swims from 1st January to 31st December 2011.
In the latter case only galas swum in Ireland have been taken into account.
The listings remain provisional for two months to enable swimmers and clubs to review them. If faster times have been swum, and fall within the criteria set out above, the listings will be updated. On the 1st of March all of those listed will become the official records.
All new records will have to be applied for in the normal way with applications being made on the official claim forms which are available on the website and on the Swim Ireland site.
Rules for claiming Irish and Provincial records are attached to this email.
There are plenty of gaps in the records so go for them!
