May Day Barbecue and Sea Swim, Monday 1st May, 11.00am

So we all know that some people have been showing off with tales of battling the high seas this early in the season so here’s the opportunity to put money where mouths are. No more the photos of a bevy of beauties seated behind what can only be described as dry wetsuits. Or ETC bags on a photoshopped background of a tropical island. This is the real thing.

The deal:

When: 11.00am, Monday May 1st, 2017.
Where: Budleigh Salterton Beach (parking at Lime Kiln Car Park)
What: Unsupervised sea swim followed by barbecue on the beach
Who: This is open to everyone (please note the swim will not be supervised) and swimmers and eaters alike are welcome. Swimming is not obligatory!

What to bring:
A sense of foreboding.
Usual swimming gear and paraphernalia.
Food (to barbecue).
Barbecues (for environmental reasons please try to arrange to share).
Blankets to sit on.
Blankets to wrap yourself in.
Clothing suitable for an arctic expedition (based on last year’s weather).

Good at swimming? Come along.
Good at eating ? Come along.
Good at eating and swimming (not simultaneously)? Come along.
Good at eating but not very good at swimming? Definitely come along.

Any queries, please email me at or find me at training. Did I mention the swim is unsupervised?!!
