Gentle Reader

The Deep Blue Invitational is coming up this weekend (13 October) at Shelley Point. The organisers are now offering a special for the 3km race: for R350 you get a day trip to the event and the swim. For more details you can visit their site or contact

While you are visiting Deep Blue you can also take a peek at our new CLDSA web site at Please send me news and photos and we will try and keep the site interesting and up to date.

A special word of congratulations to Tyron Venter who recently swam close to 50km in one week, breaking no less than four records in the process. Details are on our web site.

For those of you who have been out of touch, I am now living in Hermanus. Alas, there are not many places to swim here, notwithstanding miles of seashore. In fact, the only place to swim is the tidal pool which as the name implies is generally only swimmable at low tide. So my Sunday morning swims now vary between daybreak and late afternoon.

See you in the (tidal) pool!
