A short, sharp dip in the sea will awaken all your senses

Have your say

If you’ve not jumped into the sea for a dip this summer, you’re missing out.

I’ve swum at Southsea all year round and at times it has been nothing short of acidic.

If you’ve ever suffered brain-freeze agony from an ice cream, a January swim leaves you with delirium and a Mr Whippy swede.

This unseasonal weather has helped boost the water temperature to 18 degrees which, for the UK, is a rarity.

If you leave work a tad clammy with skin folds sticking together and beads of sweat cascading, make a quick detour to the beach on the way home.

I can guarantee that a short, sharp sea dip on a balmy summer’s evening will awaken your senses.
