Triathlon Swim Training Course.
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners that a Triathlon Swim Training Course is presently laid out at Coosan Point, Athlone for the summer period.
The 750m course is set out just south of the Waterways Ireland moorings and is marked by three large orange buoys.
The course will be active daily when a Yellow flag is flown from a mast located on the foreshore during the following times:
0800 to 1000 hrs
1230 to 1400 hrs
1700 to 2030 hrs
Masters are requested to proceed at slow speed and with minimum wash when passing the course and to note any advice given by safety boat marshals accompanying swimmers.
Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter.
