Week 8 – swimming caps

Week 8 Saturday 21 July to Friday 27 July


Swimming has been in the news lately, Olympic swimming in London of course. And the Australian media has been talking about swimming caps a little. White caps. Gold caps.

I’ve got three caps. The grey cap, from France, was a Christmas present last year. The yellow cap I  found on the Port Melbourne beach earlier this year. The white cap I bought last summer after I stretched a red cap a little too far.

‘Cap season’ for me is from May to November. I only wear one cap at a time. Some people prefer two. Maybe even three. Some wear rubber balaclavas: a sort of wetsuit hoodie for the water.

Do you wear swimming/bathing caps?  How many? What colour? Or do you go ‘bald’ all year?
