Welcome to the wonderful world of the Salty Seabirds Community!
Imagine a group of enthusiastic swimmers who embrace the sea's embrace all year round along the vibrant beaches of Brighton and Hove. We're not a typical club; think of us as a close-knit community of kindred spirits who share a passion for the ocean.
Our hub of excitement is our lively Facebook Group, where we announce our swim plans, inviting others to join in on the aquatic fun. From sunrise to sunset, you'll find a variety of swimming sessions available - early morning invigorations, daytime delights, and even enchanting evening swims. The where's and when's might change, but one thing's for sure: there's a swim happening every day. We're known to spice things up with occasional day trips too – who doesn't love a splashy adventure?
Now, let's talk attire. Some of us are fearless all-season swimmers, embracing the brisk waters with open arms, while others prefer the snug embrace of a wet-suit. It's all good vibes here; we're more interested in your enthusiasm to dive in than your choice of swimwear. Distance and speed? Nah, not our focus. Depending on the crew that day, swims could range from disciplined laps around buoys to relaxed social floats alongside the pebbled shores, counting the steadfast groynes. Your swim, your style. Freestyle, breaststroke, or even backstroke – take your pick. Although, we're still on the lookout for a seabird skilled in the art of butterfly!
We're not just about the swims; we're a haven of support. Life's tides can get a bit rough, and that's where the Seabirds community comes in. We offer companionship and a break from the daily grind, a chance to recharge in the company of like-hearted souls. And don't worry, if the waves are a bit too rowdy for a dip, we're perfectly content to gather for a paddle, a pilchard (that's lying in the shore dump for you landlubbers), or a tranquil walk. Oh, and let's not forget about the cherished tea time – and, if luck is on our side, a scrumptious slice of cake too.
Just a quick heads-up: we don't have a swanky clubhouse, so beachside changing is the name of the game. And while we're not an official club, we do take safety seriously. During the sunny months, we stick to lifeguarded shores, and during the wilder winter days, we make smart choices for our frolics in the chilly waves.
So, what's holding you back? Come on and dip your toes (or more) into the Salty Seabirds experience. Join us for a swim and some delightful camaraderie – it's a splashin' good time, we promise!
