It was actually in May.
Went swimming at Camber Sands yesterday, the weather was great, the beach was nearly empty and the water was warm. Most enjoyable.
I have failed miserably this year- we have not managed a UK swim at all yet- too much going on with school/ work etc. Snorkelled with turtles in Turkey a few weeks ago but that doesn't really count. thee water was TOO warm
I've only had two swims this year then I fell over at the beach and ended up with my wrist in plaster.
We had a week in France and swam in the sea every day. It wasn't that warm, still needed to build myself up before diving in! We did go to Ile de Re for the day and the sea was quite warm there.
Haven't been in the sea for about 15 years which is fairly typical for people in my position.
Ive been swimming in a pool a couple of times recently and my new costume hides a multitude of sins so I might risk it before the summer ends.
Hopefully it won't start a riot!
Just had my first of 2017 in playa formenta, Mallorca. Fuck me it was cold, but not as cold as the pool in our hotel!
Cornwall in 4 weeks where I'll be swimming and surfing for a week so I suspect I'll be yearning for the med when I'm there.
First swim of the year in Seaford yesterday..... somewhat bracing!
Just been in at Trebarwith Strand in Cornwall. It was lovely but couldn't cope with more than 20mins without a wetsuit. Should be getting some surf time at Polzeath this week which will be in a wetsuit so might be a bit more comfortable.
How long does it take to build up to swimming a mile ?
I'm planning for retirement when I won't be getting my 9 miles cycling per day ...
Audierne Plage de Trescadec - AUDIERNE INFO
That was brave of you - we were down in Sussex this weekend and wimped out of swimming at Cuckmere
Today. Greece. Salty.
I swam at Seaford again yesterday! And this time managed to stay in for 20 minutes. Was lovely! (This followed a river swim at Barcombe Mills on Monday - lush lush lush)
Jump in at the weekend and see how you get on.
Hayling Island today, sea was warm. Not just tolerable, but the kind of warm that makes you happy to float around for an hour.
Tried to get to West Wittering, queues on A27 and approx. three hours from A27 to Wittering
Hayling Island had no queues

Kids went to Funland too
If you're a strong swimmer, that doesn't look too bad. You're going to need a wetsuit for at least 9 months of the year though (unless of course, you are proper hardcore).
Looks nice, when are you moving?
a lovely swin at Joss bay today- first of the year- was surprisingly warm once i was up to my neck
3 years at least
