December Dipping – 2020

Nearly 5% of the population of the UK (7.5 million min a population of 66 million according to Swim England) swim in open water and outdoor pools. Many of these people swim all-year round, including quite a few people on the isle of Wight 😊 Although it is now December and the temperature of the sea continues to fall (11.9 degrees in Sandown Bay this morning) we continue to swim / dip albeit not for quite as long. 

This morning there were small groups of people in several locations and some stunning photos taken like those below. Hot drinks and hot water bottles are now an essential addition to kit bags as is the ‘foot stomp’ to encourage the blood back into the extremities…but the ZING is still stupendous 😊
