Welcome to the Vibes & Scribes Lee Swim

The Lee Swim is a point-to-point swimming race through the centre of Cork City, Ireland. It dates back to 1914, or possibly earlier. The Swim was relaunched in 2005 as the Vibes & Scribes Lee Swim and has been held annually since. It is organised by Cork Lions Club as a fun event, open to all competent swimmers. There is also a competitive element, with age group prizes and seven trophies up for grabs. There are separate categories for wetsuited and non-wetsuited (skins) swimmers. At present, numbers are split 60/30between these two categories. In 2022, an entry of approx 500 swimmers is expected, making the event one of the biggest open-water swims in Ireland.

The Swim is approximately 2km in length and follows a unique course that exploits the fact that the centre of Cork City is an island. The course comprises a downstream section of 1.7km in the North Channel of the Lee and a short upstream section of approx 300m in the South Channel. Swimmers pass under ten bridges over the course of the Swim.

There is a carnival atmosphere to the Swim, with celebrations continuing late into the evening. A video made in 2013 gives a sense of the atmosphere on the day.
