Swim Through Darkness - December 8th Swim

Swim Start Time 22:39pm

December 8th 2020

Causeway Coast

Charity AWARE NI

Swim Distance 880m


Stopped short cos some guy on the beach looked to be in distress waving his torch around. I was worried that me emerging from the darkness might add to it but I went in anyway to see what was wrong. Turned out it was his dog, he couldnt find it but just as i came ashore he did. I was absolutely flying in my swim too ffs. Anyway, could have been worse.


Please if you can spare a few quid donate to AWARE NI - Thank you for following along with my challenge!

Info - I am swimming a total of 100km through the darkness, in the darkest and coldest months of the year off the North Coast of Ireland. My aim...to inspire those who may be struggling in dark times to keep going. I also aim to raise awareness and funds for the depression Charity Aware NI. We all face dark times in life at some point and it can be extremely overwhelming.


Safety - Please don't think that because I am doing this that you too should do this or something similar. I am very experienced in the sea with knowledge that is only gained through many years of exposure to the sea in all her moods. I have a safety and location system in place including continual contact with people on land every time I swim.
