Best week in terms of distance. Great been able to swim in the evenings again.
The sea temperature is the biggest limitation now. Managed 33 minutes one evening, but wouldn't fancy any longer in skins at the moment

I've been avoiding the OW, got in this morning covered with Neoprene, two of my mates in speedos and a cap (nearly every day since Jan!)... as one of them says, we all have plenty of Bioprene

Be careful out there. Went out for swim at sea point Saturday gone. Got to 1st buoy, seen two lads talking at buoy. Both in wetsuits. One of the other lads I was with asked was all ok.

Well seems one of the two lads in wetsuit was in trouble. So onto your back lad while we swam him in....

I was back up for the other two if they got tired. Tough to get him back as sea had bit of chop plus current was pushing us down.

The lad in wetsuit was touch out of it. Reckon touch hyperthermia and panic with chop.

Anyway all’s well that end well. Once out and wrapped up he was good to go.

It was quite choppy in Seapoint on Saturday. I only went out to the first buoy and back as still building up time in the cold. I could see how with the choppy water a weaker swimming could end up being in the water longer than planned - this is all experience. I did count 70 people in the water from the edge though!!
