Good conditions and almost nine degrees in the water gave a very nice start to March for Saturday’s swimmers.
Our daily swimmers have enjoyed the warmer than usual water right through the last few months. “Like a bath”, as Tom says!
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.
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.
