Ice Flash Archive

13Apr 2014

As the Northern Hemisphere Ice season is ending and we here in Cape Town are approaching our winter, I would like to say few words about last season and future seasons to come.

We learnt a lot and we expanded our frozen horizons in term of safety, what is possible and how to do it safer, better and with quicker recovery. We now have Ice swimmers in 16 countries around the world, with South Africa still leading the board.
