Swim went amazing! Really enjoyed it! Conditions where grand ! Just a wee bit 'blowey' haha.
I really enjoyed the swim, the buzz and the craic about the event - great event - will be back next year without a doubt!
I particularly like the challenge of currents going around the lighthouse :-D
The sea was a little choppy which i didn't really mind, i think we also got the wake of the naval ship which was fine.
I would definitely come back and i would recommend it, especially for first timers as a introduction to open water swim.
Fantastic swim. Excellent organization. Legend!!!

Standing on the pier gazing at the Lighthouse, the distance looked readily attainable however the choppy water Midway really brought the challenge to light !!!
Stopping at the Lighthouse I thought it might be interesting to take a breather and enjoy the Lighthouse from this unique perspective. But quickly realised that stopping really meant going in reverse but a maximum effort push got me around on this occasion then the current slung me forward some distance past.

When u said sling shot around the lighthouse I thought you were joking.
We were thrilled to complete the challenge in our group of seven it was our first formal open water swim.
We've been swimming Swilly side since April it was a very different sea.
We would definitely return as as although the conditions were quite choppy we felt really safe in the water.
There were so many canoes and kayaks and when I drifted slightly off course there was plenty of voices redirecting me quite quickly.

Some of the things that I love about the swim are that it is a community swim; that it is free to us; there is a wonderful atmosphere and it is a great chance to meet new swimmers from all arts and parts; the chance to share food and thoughts about the swim is brilliant.

The lighthouse is such an iconic sight that it is fantastic to be able to swim out and back, it is not something one should/would not do on their own.
I think it is a swim for people who have some experience of sea conditions, having said that it is a very doable swim because it is short.
There is great safety knowing the support is there. This swim has such a great reputation - great fun but a serious challenge!
I will definitely be back next year and will have more people with me. I am still waiting for the conditions of 2014!

People came from far and wide to swim a short 1.2k swim - there's a reason for that. Well worth the trip.
Because of the earlier start for the swim came up the night before - lovely pubs, great pints and friendly atmosphere!
Love the swim - quite a challenge this year, but such a buzz when you get round. See you next year!
MLS enabled me to do a good looking swim route that I wouldn't dare do alone in choppy waters.
Really impressed by the children. Will try and get mine out next year.
Happy to circuit the lighthouse better than walking on the moon.

First ever open swim but not last, I came up from Magherafelt early and by chance parked behind another participant from Sligo, I was a bit nervous considering weather conditions but he put my mind at ease after explaining tricks of OWS but I did find it tough finding my way back after going round lighthouse. Later when home I received an email that I had a donation to my charity I am supporting - from the other participant. There are so many decent people unsung heroes in our country.

It was my first year and I found it very tough but still managed it!! Trauma of the Foyle washing machine lol! Wish I was there and able.
Moville Lighthouse Swim 2016 done! I think I spent more time moving through the air, than the water due to the waves!
Great organisation and terrific to see people from so many different places. Roll on next year. ☺
A super fun swim to the lighthouse and back, we really enjoyed the ride! Great challenging conditions and with second to none safety back up.

Lots of new faces and was lovely to see familiar ones too! This is an old favourite already X
Thanks for a great day folks. Excellently organised and appreciation to all involved - especially the kayaker who encouraged me to the finish line :-)
Arcadia Bathing Club goes International @ Moville Lighthouse Swim. A classic swim in very enjoyable and entertaining conditions.

Unforgettable swim today, we will not forget it. Hard going getting around Moville Lighthouse Swim.
Great swim. A bit tight in places. Delighted to have completed this very well organised and friendly swim.
A tough but fun swim well done. Tough swim, very bouncy. We made it, all three of us.
Bouncy swim, great safety crew and some lovely fellow crazy open water swimmers, see you all again next year- with a few more Phoenix swimmers in tow.

The biggest challenge now will be to get one of the coveted 100 places for next years swim...
The Irish Navy standing by as a support vessel... only at the Moville Lighthouse Swim!
The calm before the chop-fest. Great day for a dip at Moville. :)
Great event. Definitely one for the annual calendar!
That was some craic, wet & wild. Awesome!
That looks choppy!
