What a year! ... 2010 saw 1SOMS exceeding the 100 swimmer count on 3 occasions.. Open water swimming in the Cape continues to grow..
The roots of 1SOMS is the Clifton Cold Water Mile of 2006 ...The Annual New Years Day Swim fell on a Sunday.. It seems a fortune of time ago... the original 5 still are participants..albeit almost as a tag team..I have not done the analysis but suspect that at least 1 of the 5 are at each swim..
Cape Town born and bred..I grew up on Clifton beach..as a nipper the lifesaver at Clifton Surf Lifesaving Club...1SOMS has it roots in the annual Clifton Cold Water Mile.
I enjoy open water swimming and come from a clan of swimmers
