Good swim at Coll Beach this morning. Thanks to Stuart for the company on the first lap over to the far beach, a good chop/current on the go. Did 3 laps overall, 10.8km @3.21 hours. Duckman was saying 10.8-12.4 depending what end of the beach it was.
Nice pre work wetsuit swim. Think I'll have change the start time to be in the water for about 7am. 2 seals following me. 2.5k @ 42 minutes. Duckman was saying 12.2 degrees average.
Noel: I thought preparing for the Big Swim would be hard going but to be honest I found it quite relaxing sitting in the sun on the beach at Ardmair taking pics of Norman. Just wish he'd swim a bit quieter so not disturb my peace.
Great morning for a pre work swim. Doing some wetsuit swimming in practice for next weeks main event (hopefully the weather will be in our favour). Duckman was saying 12 degrees average. 2.58k @ 44 minutes.
Well it was a chilly 6k swim from Leckmelm down to Corry and back. The sea was perfectly calm and it was a great swim followed by a long hot bath and an afternoon kip. Tomorrow it is back to the same spot to do a 10k.

Well I just had my first swim after getting back from offshore. A rather chilly 2 1/2 hour swim along the Morefield-Rhue coast. I was really hungry and a bit tired at the end. I am looking forward to the swim in October.
Just the 1 Jobby on the go this morning. A cracking way to start the day off with a skins swim down at Coll Beach. Daylight only giving me enough time for one lap of the beach. Duckman was saying 12.2 degrees on average. 1 Jellyfish, 1 Seal & 1 Crab spot

Only had time for a 3.4k (skins) swim this morning due to less daylight hours :( Still, it was a cracking start to the day with the sea being warmer than the land. Duckman was saying 12 degrees on average
