400 People Drown Every Year
“A Message from John Doyle”
Never have your kids out of reach – highest risk group are kids from 1 to 10 years of age. Vigilance is very important!
Inability to cope – most drownings happen because the person is unable to get themselves out of danger. So again keep you children within reach.
Sea temperatures – are still around 10 degrees so muscles can stop working properly due to over exposure in cold water which leads to inability to cope.
Lack of knowledge of the environment – understand the tides, where the safest place is to swim, what rescue equipment is available and how to use it.

Luckily, still involved in the club are its founding member John Doyle, and some of its original members, Ciara, Dympna, Oscar and Hannah.
We are looking for your ideas on how we should celebrate this achievement. Any ideas, big or small, are welcome.

New Lifesaving Equipment
CPR Manikins & Practice AED’s
The club recieved a fantastic shipment of new lifesaving equipment just before lockdown. This range of manakins will be a valuable asset to our training program. They will be a big help in coaching resusitation and will allow more people to practice their CPR skills at the same time. We look forward to putting them to good
All we need now is to be back in the water!

Poseidon Raised €4,335 for Lakers
Update from Luca
Now more than ever did Bray Lakers need the €4,335 raised by the wonderful volunteers of our club. In these unprecedented times when fundraising is a struggle for charitable organisations the money raised by our wonderful club members has never been more important.
The 24 Hour CPR challenge on Feb 22nd was a huge success and the event ran smoothly thanks to the support of family, friends, and the public who came on the day to help, and buy cakes and raffle tickets.
I’m so proud to have been a part of this event and to have had the opportunity to donate this money to an amazing organisation.
