A swim to Nowhere
An Olympic artwork, Nowhere Island, is touring the South West coast. It anchors off ports and sets up a corresponding "Embassy" on shore. Just one problem - no one's allowed on it. Talk about throwing down the gauntlet. A swimmers' coup d'etat was in order. We set off at sunset from Jennycliff Beach in Plymouth Sound. stormed the island, raised a pirate flag, unfurled a banner, and then dived off, leaving some settlers to colonise.
