Congratulations to Paul Smith and his team of coaches at Brighton Swimming School, winners of the 2010 Sussex Business Award for “Innovation in Business”.
We were delighted to hear that they have won a Sussex Business Award for their sea swimming programme 'Pool to Pier', which operates from the Roedean pool through the winter.
The Pool to Pier initiative started in 2009 with 13 participants and already has 160 people signed up for 2011. It is the first swim school in Sussex to offer sea swimming courses.
Now the profile of open water swimming is growing in recognition of its benefits - it is healthy, free and carbon-neutral. The 2012 Olympics is set to feature two open water events, and closer to home we are preparing for our Roedean 125 anniversary Pier to Pier swim on 26 June 2011.
