Swim Through Darkness - Third Swim
Swim Start Time 22:23pm
December 3rd 2020
Charity AWARE NI
Swim Distance 1.22KM
Really good swim. I find the more bigger the surf is the better. It sends the lines of whitewater towards me in much more of a rhythm and its easier to swim. Look at the the chart though you can clearly see I was being pushed and pulled as I swam. Great swim. Really enjoying this now. Feels like I'm starting to get into my own rhythm.

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.
