We’ve got the bug!

This is me (on the left) with my friend Kate Ferbrache just before our first ever ‘proper’ open water swim. This was taken at Coniston – we now have the bug and will be going again in 2018! Yes we are both wearing wetsuits but we have overcome our fears of swimming in open water (being steadfast pool swimmers) and wearing the wetsuit helped us do that. Open water swimming is new to both of us but we now have a group that train together (I must mention David Bailey who we call Captain Zig Zag as he can’t go in a straight line!) and I also encourage others to go in the sea whenever I get the opportunity to get on the subject!
