Cold water swimming has a positive impact on physical and mental wellbeing. We are lucky to live by the sea, and in Brighton there is a large beach community of swimmers that swim all year round. Sea Swimming has become popular with people from all walks of life, all readiness levels, shapes and sizes all keen to experience benefits that are so widely talked about. Many say you get a post swim ‘high’ which is similar to antidepressants.

But the positive impact can be as much about the cold water physical effect as being about the community and the sense of belonging. Swimming groups provide each other with confidence and friendship unified by a love of being outdoors and in the water. Unlike many other outdoor activities it straddles age groups, gender and socio-economic status. You don’t need to be fit to do it, it’s free or relatively cheap and in certain circumstances you don’t really need to be able to swim – as long as you get wet it counts!

If this is something you have been interested in, here’s your chance for a free taster. Why not give it a go? We are sure you will love it!
