Sub Aqualympics 2020

Sandycove Beach
Sandycove Ave W
Sandycove, Dublin

This is a competition of grit, competence, and skill as SCUBA teams navigate through the soupy waters of Sandycove in a race vs. reality!

In this race against time, scuba peers are faced with the challenge of locating the clue at the end of the shot line!

Teams enter from opposite sides of the bay and submerge to go head-to-head towards their designated markers throughout the centre of the bay. When a team locates their shot line, they must read their riddle clue attached to the weight, transcribe it on their diving slate and bring it to their team onshore. Then the second (and possibly third) subsequent teams must do the same, with the riddle clues changing every time between by our crew on the water. At the end of the relay exercise, each whole club must solve their riddle by putting each separate clue together.

Oh, and how do we follow their progress while underwater, you ask? Well by attaching funny recognisable SMBs to each team of divers!

Onshore there will be food, music, and games to keep up the competitive spirit while the divers are in the water, and afterward, awards will be presented over dinner and pints, then straight to coppers (wristbands pending)! So, join us for a day of unbeatable craic, but remember to bring your competitive side.
