Many die-hard ocean swimmers hit the water every day of the year – rain,
hail or gale-force winds. Some are training for Rotto or other open-water
swims, while others do it simply for the love and tradition.
One such group can be found at North Cottesloe around 6.30
every morning. The swimmers, aged 53 to 74, vary the swimming distance
between winter and summer. On “hideously wild, wintery days” they settle
for a quick dunk. “No matter how bad any of us are feeling in the morning,
once we’ve been in and had a swim we feel so much better,” says Jo Rees,
who has been swimming six days a week for the last 25 years.
“And we say to each other: ‘Can you believe people are still in bed and
are missing out on this?’” adds Ann Vincent, a seven-day-a-week ocean
addict. “If I don’t start the day with a swim, it’s just not right!”
Shelley Taylor-Smith gives a swimming class
the benefit of years of competitive experience.
