Play – Brixham mostly (Fishcombe, Churston, Breakwater), Torbay and South Hams generally; with singular dips in Fife and Cornwall.

Adventures – various solo swims/runs in Skiathos; Dart to Start Point with Mrs Ape, Kari and Mark; Ned Denison’s Swim Camp (half the distance (40km), on shore and kayak support and housework for two other swimmers!)

Training – Torbay Leisure Centre (Jan to April), Shoalstone (May to September)

Races -Cross Torbay (4miles, 2hr 15m, 14C, squally, misty, washing machine madness…cursed and showered for 30 minutes afterwards); Loch Allua (8km, @2hr 25m, 17C, flat and knackered afterwards); Shoalstone Pool (against head lifeguard…lost!), Buckfastleigh Ice Gala (42m, 2nd in final, 29.5 secs)

Encounters – seals, jelly fish and a host of friendly swimmers here and afar.

Thank you
