Swimming in Shetland

by Helen Smith -

You might think I’m a little bit crazy but I’ve ordered myself a wetsuit and I'm going to go swimming in the sea with my friend Emma Williamson. Emma recently swum from Bressay to Lerwick, along with 17 others to raise money for charity. She trains regularly with Ryan Leith, who took this lovely footage when out swimming recently. I'll keep you updated on my swimming adventures - I've done diving abroad and loved it, so I'm really excited about taking the plunge! I'm playing it safe though and going with experts who know the waters well. I grew up learning to have a healthy respect of the sea.
