swim (Open water) 37:00  1.14 km (32:27 / km)
Today I spent most of my day off at Anne’s at Seacliff to be in a safer location given heat and strong northerlies - however, early evening I decided to swim at the beach. It was really rough and it took me 35 minutes to swim 1 km north towards Brighton! . Then I turned around and straight away I felt the difference, I felt like I was flying and I thought this will be fun. Then I noticed the Westpac helicopter coming towards me, nearly directly overhead. Next thing I hear the helicopters siren and it starts circling just near me! Oh great. I looked up and there didn’t seem to be anyone else in the water. I was in shallow water but then realised it was a sandbar, and there was a deep section between me and the beach. A burst of speed ensued. Needless to say I didn’t finish my tail wind swim! .
