24th July Deal / Dover waiting....

Another scorching day, but the wind has certainly increased today. We had a lazy morning, and I did an inventory check on the main kit box while I ate a few breakfasts :) We went off to meet Dr Julie Bradshaw MBE, of the channels swimming association on the beach for a few last minute tips. (Julie swam the channel butterfly in 2002, so surely front crawl must be a doddle!?!?!) Duly inspired, the wind whipped up in the afternoon, and the view is that tonight will be a no go. Feeling over the cold now, so this was a disappointment. Friday and Saturday are looking quite good.....we'll see....

Time for a bit of training at Deal tonight....
