What a year so far... This 1st Sunday of Month Swim (aka 1SOMS) is the last before a well deserved month break... Yes I know that for many of you out there you still have a goal to accomplish before the Winter weather sets in.. South Africa Iron Man 2011 takes place in 12 days... making 1SOMS (probably) the last long open water swim ahead of race day...I trust that the water will be a tad warmer as you go up the coast to contest but if not you will have the edge on the warm water brigade.

This past week I aged.. literally.. but I have also had some very interesting moments... I have new respect for TV ads and the details that goes into the back of them. To be frank more communication and the ad would possibly have been shot quicker/cleaner/with less effort...but that is a story for another day. Last comment on that was how shooting was stopped as pod of dolphins (for the 2nd day in a row) did a swim-by of the Sea Point Pavilion..the water almost boiled with activity.
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
