Last night there was a crazy woman in a swimming costume while I'm shivering in my wetsuit.
There always at least 1 crazy woman swimming skins, ask Seren. 10 degrees last week in the river & a different lady swims skins for 45 minutes. She is one of our Ice Queens though. First lady in Wales to swim an Ice Mile in Wales in a lake on top of a mountain, back in February.
Might be able to miss out that little section on the way out & use the main road once the new A465 is fully open, not so easy on the way back though, so yes might be there again. hoping to perhaps get a parking restriction on the hill which would make it a lot tidier for you guys. Fingers crossed.. (But I'll get it in the neck from the neighbours then, bloody cyclists )
Worked out OK in the end. Glad to cheer on the pirates racing, assume you were one of those Duda. I was stationed on the turn in & out at Beaufort sending you out across the moors & welcoming you back to civilization. Hope you enjoyed it.
Bigger next year according to James & entry already opened!!!!(?)
Come up to Usk on a Friday evening, or any time you fancy, the river is open 24/7 & free. Fridays group normally includes quite a few NEWTs the Newport tri club. Are you on Facebook? join the South Wales outdoor swimming page, posts on there of various swims.
Barry, the main beach (Whitmore Bay) is great on an incoming tide.
IronCat5 can I ask a favour please, that you edit the post above. That venue is not open.
