Autumnal Open Water Swimming

Autumn is here and winter is definitely on its way, but we still managed to get a decent group of us out for an open water swim in Clarach this morning.

Despite the dark dingy start to the day, complete with some rain for good measure, I met Amanda, Graham, Sharon and Mel in Clarach Bay. After a quick chat whilst wriggling into our wetsuits we plunged into the grey, murky waters. The water temperature has dropped a bit over the last week and it is beginning to feel a little cooler, but only for the first minute and we all soon acclimatised.

We didn’t go anywhere exciting, just swam up and down the bay a few times and stopped for a chat at either end. It was then back to Graham and Sharon’s for tea and biscuits and then home for a nice warming bowl of stew. I wonder how far into winter we can keep this up?
