UK Cold Water Swimming Championships 26 Jan 2013

How anyone can even think of dipping their toes never mind their bodies in sub-freezing water in January¬† is beyond me. The swimmers didn’t even look cold. This event has gone from strength to strength and is a great day out – it is so well organised and FUN. Loved the Cycle Cinema, Curry, Crepe and Hog Roast Stall and the well-positioned Hot Tubs provided by Bigfire. Until 2015, when the next one takes place.
