2014 Frances Thornton Memorial Galway Bay Swim Results

The weather on the morning of the swim was dry. The wind speed was 12 Р14 Knots (Force 4) in the bay which backed from NW to W during the swim. Swimmers head almost directly North to cross Galway bay from Aughinish, Clare to Salthill.  This means that the swimmers would have been swimming against the wind for the first half of the crossing before the wind moved around to a more Westerly direction.
