Toe in the water. Face in the water. Staying afloat. Touching the bottom. One length without stopping. Fifty lengths without stopping. Diving from the 10 meter board, without a toe out of place. Wading in amongst the horde, without running back out again. Lying flat on my back. Out to the buoy and back. Holding my breath. Holding court. Relaying. Relaxing. Getting used to the water. Getting fit. Getting faster.
Me and the water.
We all have a relationship with water.
Swim Ireland exists to nurture that.
And our 'Me and the Water' community is one way we do that for those who see water and swimming as a lifestyle and social outlet, above anything else.
The water means different things to different people, and the phrase 'Me and the Water' represents Swim Ireland's commitment to representing all of those who have a relationship with the water.
