Swim Marseille, France

If you’re in the South of France in June the Le Défi de Monte-Cristo is a really beautiful sea swim - 5KM swim from the Marseille light house back to the beach. Unfortunately an unseasonably cold June had kept the ocean temperature low and my decision to not use my wetsuit was unwise. I was pulled out with a mild case of hypothermia. I will be back.
