My first salty sea dog swim!

This was my first sea swim yesterday and it was a brilliant experience. The organisation was excellent, bullhorn man was funny and easy to understand.
Would I do another event? Yes
Would I recommend Salty Sea Dog swims? Yes
Once I did one lap and relaxed and stopped swallowing sea water I really enjoyed it!
So - thank you for giving me the bug.
