Temps dropped at the weekend. A few of us were also breaking a cardinal rule (don’t swim with a hangover), so we felt it a bit more. Under 10c in the sea and zero on land with a frozen beach. Winter swimming started properly.
As Angela Harris noted online, lack of cake caused some swimmers to simply run out of energy on the beach.
As ever, Siobhan got the picture that tells a thousand words. Why swim in the Winter? For this.
Forecast at present looks a bit windy for the Turkey Swim next Saturday at 3pm. It’s veering WNW though, so we might be lucky. Apparently the forecast is great for the Turkey Thaw in the Pine Lodge afterwards, so that’s a relief.
Swim today, Monday, at 4.15pm. All welcome. Swim Safe.
