Covid 19 Swimming Advice

Outdoor Swimming Magazine – latest advice 😊 As from Wednesday the 13th of May I’m back in the water! BUT if you haven’t swum for a while, please be very careful! Take a look at the tips and hints for newbies, just in case there is something you might not have considered. Try and swim on an incoming tide and lower incoming tide if it is rough as there will be fewer ‘plunging’ waves (remember, a cubic meter of water weighs about a tonne – the same as a small car! AND it is moving…remember physics? f=ma? force equals mass x acceleration, answer = a ‘hefty clout’)

Be careful, the beach profile / debris underfoot may have changed. Don’t forget flasks etc and if the sun is out, a book 😊
