January – We both enjoyed the PHISH cold water racing championship (organised by that giant of cold water swimming, John Donald) – and I managed a cool 7th in the 1km endurance. And filmed Mrs Ape stroking through Tooting Bec Lido in the rain.
May – Getting busy. Cleaned the cafe with Nando and an army of helpers; went to the launch of Jenny Landreth’s Swimming London; Mrs Ape won the Rose Merrit Bowl again; and I was the 3rd SuperVet in my one and only Aquathlon.
June – a week swimming on the Aoelian Islands, off Sicily with t’other Carl.
September – took part in the first Scilly Swim Challenge.
October – sunshine and leaves at Tooting.
November – back to Devon. And Movember madness.
December – cold in Tooting, warm in Charlton, amazing in the Olympic Pool.
Hopes for 2015 – Summer Isles trip in midsummer (if the locals reply to my mails!); lots of SW Coast swimming; Dartington to Dartmouth with Kari (unfinished business!); ‘getting’ effortless butterfly and swimming a quarter mile of it.
