Meet Cleo Dublin's only lifeguard dog
Visitors to the beach will be used to see her wearing her bright orange lifejacket, she never hits the water without it
Tuesday 25th – Board meeting On one of the wettest and coldest July evenings in memory we split into two board groups with every board we have wet. A sea of yellow against a grey sky and sea. Hand & paddle skills were worked on. Some impressive noobs on the water
Weather: foul, heavy rain, Tide: low, flat calm Wildlife: light scattering purple jellyfish, dog
Next swims Saturday – Beach Lifeguard (contact your TA) Sunday @7
Just a note, the ski, lovingly known as the ugly one, was formally retired this week(with a sledge hammer). Already tired when it joined us 5 years ago we made a decision that the money and time required for on-going repairs was just too great. Heavy in the water, clumsy to steer, useless for towing, leaked like a sieve, uncomfortable with the hydrodynamics of a cavity block were some of its better points but for all this it was incredibly photogenic. It served its time well and will be replaced at the end of the season by another first in rescue boards in Ireland, something very special - more soon.

Big difference to the Howth triathlon numbers at the weekend.
