Here’s to the days not drifting … By Belinda Dixon
Early May saw around thirty wildswimmers descend on a campsite in Cornwall. A star-bright night brought frosted tent flaps and a chilly but sunny day.
Saturday saw some people ploughing through the sea for 90 minutes in just swimsuits; others crossed and re-crossed an otherwise deserted Caerhays Bay.
There was shivering – a lot of shivering. There were cold hands and numb feet. But there was also exploring and campfires and conversations; lots of laughter and even more cake.
Challenges were set and met, milestones passed.
In short, there were adventures and plenty of good times 🙂
This swim camp was with the frankly fabulous Devon & Cornwall Wild Swimming, which is a great source of local contacts.
Nationally, the Outdoor Swimming Society’s website is strong on tips, links, events and safety advice.
So, maybe see you in the sea … ?
