Handicapper and Race Teams
The OpenSea Committee reviewed the race handicapping process in 2013 and introduced a number of changes. Click here for a link to the new procedures and for information on a Race Team initiative to assist novice open water swimmers.

Liffey Swim Brochure / Exhibition
The Open Sea Committee have been approached by the 1913 Committee who want us to arrange an exhibition and/or a brochure to commemorate 100 years since the lockout in 1913 and the involvement of the citizens of Dublin in the Liffey Swim over the years.
This could take the form of an exhibition of photos taken during previous Liffey Swims, information on people who were saved from drowning in the Liffey and some old vehicles. The 1913 Committee have offered to assist in preparation of the materials and to give us of their historic records for this purpose.
There must be many swimmers with a talent for artistic presentation of this type of material and who have suitable old family photos and records.
Depending on input this could be just something for on the day at the quayside or a much larger exhibition in adjacent accommodation which might be made available by either the Dublin City Council or the Dublin Port Company.
Any budding artists or event and exhibition planners are invited to take part. We are looking for expressions of interest from swimmers to assist us. Please email Gus Cooney or Eoin Gaffney.

Online Survey by Dr. Tom Doyle into Jellyfish Stings
Stung By a Jellyfish?
Have you been stung by a jellyfish? If yes, then we are interested in knowing where and when the incident happened and what treatment, if any, you received.

Simply click on our Google map tool to “Report a sting” and complete a short questionnaire. The whole process should take less than 5 minutes. The information collected will help us determine if there are any particular hotspots or areas to avoid swimming in. It will also give us a good estimate of how many persons are stung each summer. Thank you for your time and information.
