The sand rubbing between your toes, the salty sea air blowing in your face. White crests mock you and challenge you to cast off and set to the sea.
The start signal is rising above the sound of the whispering waves: a 2 km swim in the North Sea. One moment you feel like a bobbing nut, the next like a dolphin. The sound of water lapping at the beach, waves, currents, wind, you are trying to find the right rhythm, whilst tasting the salty water on your lips, and when you turn your head to breathe … you see the sky and water, lots and lots of water … You are participating in the sea swim: 17.00, July 4, 2015!
