Heather Massey, a researcher from Portsmouth University will be talk to the Outdoor Swimming Group IOW, about the joys and hazards of winter swimming and will try and answer any questions you may have.

She has written many articles for the Outdoor Swimming Society including this one: https://www.outdoorswimmingsociety.com/warming-up-after-drop/

This will be an informal get together and all are welcome (including those who have never swum in the sea in the winter!)

We will be asking for donations on the day to cover the costs of travel, room hire and coffee.

Please let us know if you will be coming and if you are bringing any extra swimmers/non-swimmers along too as we need to confirm catering arrangements.

As usual, we will be going for a quick dip or a longer swim too, but at the slightly later time of 11.15am.
