On my few long swims in the wetsuit last year, I used cold drinks in milk bottles. In togs this year and needing warm drinks, the milk bottles don’t work, so I took Carol Cashell’s advice and went to The Edge to invest in a Contigo bottle.
Much to my surprise, Steve Redmond – as in, “starting his swim from Ireland to Wales at 11.30pm tonight”, Steve Redmond – was standing at the display counter, pondering which of the bottles to choose.
Being an expert in the field, I gave him sterling advice. I was literally off the phone to Carol being told what to get: she even sent me a picture. I sounded like I knew what I was talking about, because Carol does and I was just parroting her. Mr. Redmond chose what will now be known as Carol’s Bottle. So, when he reaches Wales, I will claim the credit for the advice and if there are any problems with feeds on the way, Steve should contact Carol at swimmersrock.com. Good luck, Steve!
