  • Short Summary

    Races and games - some serious and some fun - at seaside swimming gala.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Bray S. C. Gala. One of the Season's most successful reunions".

    Bray, Wicklow, Southern Ireland (Eire, Republic of Ireland).

    Various shots of a swimming race. It takes place in section of sea near beach, cordoned off by rowing boats. M/S of a blindfolded man sitting in a sack on a chair on a diving board. Two men fasten top of sack. L/S of blindfolded man in sack being thrown from diving board into the sea. Seems a bit sinister until we see man emerge from water almost immediately.

    M/S of a race between people on inflatable sea horses. Panning shot along a crowd of young people, some in swimsuits.
