Some of us here in Viking Marine are braving the Forty Foot bathing place on Dublin Bay every morning and have to admit to nearing addiction on the daily plunge writes Ian O'Meara. Porridge is even back on the breakfast menu despite the most awful boarding school memories of lumpy gruel.
The best learning of all is that hats, gloves and socks as worn by the seasoned and learned folk in the Forty Foot vastly improves length of time in the water. So the days of being termed a 'teabagger' - the dip in dip out are over. God bless neoprene!
