I swam at 6:05 this morning, was in a rush to catch up to the 6am crew and forgot to look at Guy's temp and artwork. Grabbed a pic on the way back and confirmed my suspicions that it was the warmest water we've had in a while. Before I... Continue reading

The swell chart this morning showed a 4m ENE swell with 46 km/h winds from the east. After swimming through the sludge yesterday at Shelly, I decided for the 1st time in 8 years with the BnB to head to the pool. Turns out that a lot of fellow BnBers... Continue reading

Today was one of those days that makes most other swims awesome. An easterly wind had whipped up some chop and brought in a few bluebottles - hopefully nobody got stung. The waves were ok, but it was a little bumpy at the point at low tide. However, as the... Continue reading

A stunning morning for a swim. And it’s the first time for a while that we’ve cracked 20 degrees in the water. Other firsts include the video below that I made with iMovie. It’s not up to Jac’s high standard but I’ve got to start somewhere, right? And it was... Continue reading

BOLD & BEAUTIFUL IS NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING DUE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING INSIDE AS MUCH AS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19). Sublime autumn conditions this morning, this is the ocean when I arrived at about 6:20am. The bright light in the water near the point... Continue reading

There was a lot of freestyling this morning. It is of course the style of choice for our swim across Cabbage Tree Bay, though I have seen the odd backstroker and even a butterflier or two, which I reckon is a fair achievement in the ocean. Here's some freestyling shots... Continue reading

This morning after the swim I'm doing the brain cancer charity walk from Shelly Beach to Curl Curl, so as I'm super-organised and a little short on time I prepared most of this blog yesterday :). Also, I took some great close-up photos of a wobbegong this morning but just... Continue reading

One of life's luxuries as an ocean swimmer is the thinking time we get while in the water. No black line to follow, no laps to count, no conversations to be had while you're actually swimming. Sometimes I concentrate on my technique (reach..catch..high elbow..pull..finish stroke), sometimes I'm too busy racing... Continue reading
