A few minutes after getting on the boat…

Taken in Force 5 winds while the boat was being thrown about the place, so it’s a bit blurred.

I’m bloated from the previously mentioned Third Spacing of Fluids. (This actually passed within a few hours due to urination.)

Anti-fouling paint from under the boat.

Channel grease and accumulated dirt.

Ocular orbits swollen and white from wearing goggles.

Weird Open Water swimmer’s tan.

Kevin Murphy, King Of The English Channel, seated beside me (and Hoffy’s legs).

Proudly (should I have noticed), wearing my Swim Ireland Irish hoody.

I’m not falling asleep there, I’m trying to concentrate on not throwing up. I didn’t succeed. :-)
