Come and Join the Swimming Fun!
Well, we do have some fun here in glorious West Wales - both myself and Justin regularly swim with the Ceredigion Bluetits and Bells Chill Swimmers - a great group of local people, dedicated to having regular doses of #VitaminSea.
Everyone is welcome, all abilities, confidence levels and age is definitely no barrier! Just bring along a sense of adventure, a warm drink, a few layers for after the swim, and prepare to enter the magical world of Chill Open Water Swimming.
There is lots of advice on how to start on your swimming journey and the benefits of regular dips on the Outdoor Swimming Society website.
If you are staying with us during 2020, bring your bathers and come and join the fun - we swim regularly at our stunning local beaches including #NewQuay, #Llangrannog, #Aberporth and #Mwnt. Some swims take part in more remote beaches such as our local secret beach #TraethSilio, or in lakes and quarry pools inland. Every one is welcome; go on - you know you want to......
Meanwhile have a look below at our local swimming pool - New Quay harbour on a sunny January morning where a group of us are training for our first distance event - the Cool km/mile swim in the fabulous Tal Y Llyn lake this November. The water temperature is currently hovering around 9 Celcius - there is nothing like the feel of the water and the sun on your face while swimming with a group of like-minded people.
Thanks to Sian Evans for this lovely photo of New Quay on 12th January after our training!
And for some real entertainment, here all are group of the Tits and Bells joining in the fun of the Aberporth Boxing Day Swim. A fabulous video by our good friend Gail Tudor from Golwg Y Graig. We can be seen at the end, swimming away and having an exhilarating way to burn off some Christmas excess!
