The swim across the Corryvreckan Whirl pool is not to be taken lightly. At high tide, the water rushes through this stretch at 8.4 knots and creates a fascinating series of whirlpools and water patterns, due to a deep hole and rising pinnacle beneath the surface. At its height, the Corryvrechan is known as the third biggest whirlpool in the world! The Corryvreckan whirlpools calm down for about half an hour a tide, giving time to make the swim across.
Michael is completing this as part of his fundraising for World Challenge to Cambodia for international volunteering. He needs to raise £3,800 for next year and this is part of his fundraising toward it. Any donations would be greatly appreciated to Michael Mooney Just giving Page.
Please support Michael, taking on this terrifying challenge.
