Autumn Sea Swim – Felixstowe 9th October

Change of Location
Following feedback on trips to Dunwich in recent years we decided to suggest Felixstowe instead of Dunwich for 2016.

We felt that the benefits were:

  • Relatively safer swimming at all states of the tide
  • Easier, quicker access by car from Cambridge with easy parking
  • Accessible by public transport from Cambridge
  • Numerous cafes for lunch and afternoon cakes
  • Plenty of shelter if needed
  • Possibly a beach hut as a base – thanks to Seamus

Trip Report
On Sunday 9th October, in a break with tradition, we visited Felixstowe for our annual Autumn swim in the sea.
The day proved to be a great success and started well with bright sunshine although there was a heavy rain shower just as most of were changing after swimming – never mind, the sun soon reappeared and some even returned to the sea later in the day!

The result was a very enjoyable day out, with around 27 people attending and many positive comments.

Thanks for joining us and here’s to next year!
