It's getting colder, but we're tough!


As we move into winter, I can't help but notice that the number of hardy souls braving swims at Doddis is diminishing and, inversely, the number of swimmers volunteering to stay on the beach and be Spotter is increasing. With the water temperature officially recorded recently at 16.5 deg C (thanks Ivan) those who feel the cold are now pulling on the wetsuits and in that way are able to keep swimming.
