A 2011 open water swimming retrospective

Everyone does it, don’t they?

I couldn’t decide what to write about, so as usual in these circumstances, I went to the sea, and figured it out. Here it is:

I swam in places old and new.

I swam with friends and I made new swimming friends, (some of whom I’ve yet to meet and swim with). 

Result? A very successful open water swimming year. Right there is everything I know about open water swimming, condensed.

Thanks to you all for your interest, views, engagement, comments, pictures, arguments, insults, threats, posts, tweets and links this year, most of all thanks to all my friends, and best wishes to everyone for a swimming new year.

I hope to meet you all in the water in 2012!
