It was 7 degrees today as I walked to the swim and my hands were frozen. Not as frozen as my feet were afterwards. Luckily the water temperature is holding out for us, still above 18 degrees every day, today was 18.4. Everyone is ticking that swim box to collect... Continue reading

Today was the perfect start to winter swimming: sharp, brisk breeze before and after the swim, crystal clear water that was flat as a pancake, and an abundance of marine life to marvel at. There were no newbies ( now's the time to start peeps before it really gets cold!... Continue reading

Sometimes it's not just the exercise we come down to Manly for but the people, animals and fun time had by all. The day started off stormy after raining all night... then it all cleared up nicely for our swim... We had two new swimmers today: Jenny brought along Emma,... Continue reading

I got drenched today before I even got into the water, the surf was big and rough, it was raining and the wind was strong enough to turn some people off using an umbrella. I'm told the early swimmers headed for the harbour but Rusty gave everyone an ok report... Continue reading

Manly Wine has a different point of view on change: I saw Paul today and had a chat about his Rottnest Island swim last week, 9 hours of swimming and no sharks spotted. He did get to swim with Eagle Rays once closer to land :) I wonder what's the... Continue reading

I got down to Manly today and was quite disheartened to see the rough surf and rippy chop chop water, and decided I'd walk to half way or Shelly beach. Actually it was a lovely swim despite some bounce in the bay, and there were no blue bottles seen in... Continue reading

After all the heatwaves and then claps of thunder overnight with rain, today was the kind of day I could wake up to all the time. Perfect swimming conditions and a beautiful temperature as well, I want summer to stay a while. There were 13 newbies today, not sure I... Continue reading

I swam over the Eagle Ray today, couldn't... Continue reading

It was a real "mish mash" sort of a day down at Manly. People didn't know if they were coming or going, or if they were Arthur or Marthur. Some people swam north, some went south and others walked over to the harbour for a swim. In the end I... Continue reading

Morning all- today's swim for me was all about friends and the friendships formed down with the B+B group. We had the memorial swim for Ed Selby who passed away from pancreatic cancer in October. His three sons paddled out into the bay with a circle of swimmers as they... Continue reading

Today a friend of mine is having her fifth round of surgery for breast cancer, and I was reminded we all need to remember to be grateful for every day we get to stop and smell the roses. The view at North Steyne where I park my car welcomed me... Continue reading
