No swim Monday.

Wind is now 20 mph SW & ugly sea - the same wind that pushed me halfway into the North Sea last year. The locals are all confident "looks good for Tuesday."

Starting to get ratty now - logistics like accommodation & plane tickets start to intrude. 


Afternoon swim at Shakespeare beach; white cliffs of Dover in the background.


  1. Hang in there Andrew, I know this is tough. Lots of love from all of us. Doe

  3. Hi Andy

    Understand that the weather is fine but holding thumbs that the wind comes right.

    This is not for those with light nerves.
