Saturday Socially Distanced swim

There is SO much conflicting information flying around at the moment, don’t forget to exercise, don’t mix in groups, don’t swim alone, or together. After weighing all of this up, some of us have decided that the mental health benefits of sea swimming within the context of the social distancing guidelines mean we can continue as long as we are allowed to do so. To be honest, it was so rough and windy that we only had a quick dip in the easterly flowing ‘water-slide’ followed by a free windblown sand-body-scrub. It was also beautiful 😊

NB at least 2m apart! We are being careful!

Accuweather 8 degrees, real feel 2, wind E, 43 km/h, gusting 56, pressure 1024. Met office, 9 degrees, real feel 3, wind 46 km/h, gusting 68, pressure 1024. Channel Coastal Observatory, wave height 2.02m, max 3.2m, sea temp 8.8 degrees.
