Francis Thornton Memorial Galway Bay Swim
The marathon swim from Auginish in Co. Clare to Blackrock Diving Tower in Salthill is a distance of roughly 13 kilometres. In 2012, €60,000 was raised for Cancer Care West bringing its cumulative total raised to over €400,000. In that period the charity has launched several new services to the people of Galway and the rest of Connacht.
In 2013, there were 50 people attempting an individual crossing with 5 relay teams for a total of 75 swimmers, 80 boats, kayaks, paddle boards and over 100 crew in the bay and many more supporters and volunteers on the land.
