Big swim with the Icicles!

Had a wonderful tide-assisted 5.5k sea swim with the young East Coast Icicles yesterday - their first team swim for a month as they prepare for their English Channel relay attempt this week (weather permitting). And after a few weeks holiday break I felt back at 'full gas' - or was that partly the generous tidal flow?! Averaging 1:18/100 over 72 mins suggests so! Having the current gives you a mental as well as physical boost.
