Brighton Swimming Club 1

During my visit to Cambridge I made sure I made a stop down to Brighton. It was my second trip to Brighton but my first swim in the English Channel. Before my trip I made sure to get a Nikonos V camera, after seeing lomokev's set, because I new I wanted to take a dip.

 

The water was fucking cold. Real cold. Around 8 deg. C I was told. Luckily Kev loaned me his water shoes and gloves, but they didn't make it any more tolerable. I ended up giving Kev his gloves back because he was swimming with his hands above the water. Weak.

 

The Brighton Swimming Club welcomed me in the water and they and Kev showed me a good time. They wrote my name in the diary and it will be in the Brighton Museum on display acknowledging my dip in the sea.

 

What a great time. I look forward to my next trip to Brighton. I've met some great people there and lomokev and rockcakes always show me a great time.
