Cold water training now starting in ernest - see the chart below.

There is a mile swim at 09h30 on the first Sunday of each month at Clifton - one of the most beautiful beaches - and one of the coldest. It is an easy swim: out 50m from Clifton 4th beach, and then parallel to the coast - through the kelp in the middle of the bay - to the bouy at 1st beach, and back - through the kelp again - to 4th beach. 11 degrees was cold enough to make most of the 15 swimmers colder when they got out of the water and stopped moving.
