A long walk to get out far enough to swim at Coll beach this morning and even further to walk back when I got out, due to the outgoing tide. Duckman saying 7.3 degrees. 5.01km @ 1hr 46 mins.
Thanks to 'By Rosie' for the Hoodie & Hat which are great for after a swim in the sea and for backing the Minch Swims. Thanks also to The HEB magazine for the article & to John Dyer for the photo's. www.byrosie.co.uk

A few photo's from this mornings 5k swim. Sea was like a millpond. Duckman saying 6.8 degrees. A few small crabs and jellyfish. Some days you just don't want to get out...5.50km @ 1hr 38mins
Had time for a quick skins dip down at Coll beach. Was too nice an evening not to, though there a strong tide against me on the way up. Duckman was saying 9 degrees on average. Amazing what a bit of sunshine can do to the sea. 2.37k @ 57 mins
First 10k swim of the season. Good conditions, with feed stops at each of the beach. Duckman was saying 7.7 degrees. 10.3k @ 3hrs 33 mins.
