Brighton's Annual Christmas Day Swim

Happy New Year! From all the Freedom team, we hope you had a delightful festive season. Here in Brighton, Christmas Day is always somewhat 'interesting'. The crazy Brighton Swimming Club hosts it's annual Christmas Day sea swim - but this year it was a somewhat quieter affair due to high tides of up to 6.7m and the council and club taking a decision to ban general public from taking part for health and safety reasons.

Still a crowd of thousands proudly watched the crazy over 100 members do their swim - although I can't help think it might've been slightly better conditions than last year -when there was snow on the ground and ice and freezingness everywhere! Have you thought about your 2012 holiday yet?
