March – in like a lamb and out like a….Gary?

Good conditions and almost nine degrees in the water gave a very nice start to March for Saturday’s swimmers.

Siobhan makes it in front of the camera and poses – of course.

Our daily swimmers have enjoyed the warmer than usual water right through the last few months.  “Like a bath”, as Tom says!

Tom & Pat – daily swimmers and an example to us all.

Even though it’s not Ice Mile calibre, cold(ish) water can do strange things to the mind.  That’s the only explanation I can think of for Gary’s carry-on in this series of pictures, as he throws off the wetsuit and works on his acclimatisation outside the water.

‘REAL men don’t wear skirts, lads – just togs!’ Gary Frost continues the show.

The Finale – Would you buy a used car from this man?   Gary Frost doing…..something. You’ll have to ask him.

More returnees last week with Rebeca Power notably going straight back into the sea in togs.  Cold?  What cold?  Aiming for Thursday at 4.30pm and Saturday at 08.15, weather permitting.
