Spike Island, site of the Escape from Spike Island swim
A 1.8 km swim from Spike Island to Cobh Harbour on the mainland of Ireland. It is part of the Triple Crown of Prison Island Swims, otherwise known as Triple Break, a trio of ocean swims where swimmers challenge themselves to escape by swimming from some of the world's most well-known island prisons: Alcatraz in San Francisco, California, Robben Island near Cape Town, South Africa, and Spike Island in Cobh, Ireland.

It will also be held unofficially for the participants of the 2013 Global Open Water Swimming Conference in Cork, Ireland on 11 October 2013.
