International Women’s Day – Dipping Britain with Lindsey Cole

March 9 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


In 2018, Lindsey swam the length of the Thames dressed as a mermaid! Not only did she find tons of manmade polymers, but she also discovered the wonderful community of outdoor swimming. She was so moved that she decided to meet more wild swimming communities across the country by cycling to the Scottish Cold Water Swimming Champs meeting swimming groups en route. High on adrenaline, she decided to carry on, all over Britain – from Shetland to the Isles of Scilly. Wherever she received a swim invite, she went!

Lindsey will share her story and there will be plenty of time for chat and questions at the end.

If you’d like to swim with Lindsey before the event, we’ll be meeting at 5.30 pm on the prom outside Portobello baths. We’ll then make our way to Tribe Porty, a 5-minute walk, where we can warm up with hot drinks and listen to Lindsey talk about her Dipping Britain adventures.

❄️ All swimmers take part at their own risk. Lindsey Cole, Tribe Women or Tribe Porty hold no responsibility for your safety.
