The Red Bull website has “picked the most amazing pools to train in on the planet” and Bude Sea Pool has come in the top ten along with pools at exotic places like Bondi, Chamonix and Chile. It describes Bude Sea Pool as:
Managed by the local charity of the Friends of Bude Sea Pool, this venue is free and visited by thousands of people every year. The pool is a semi-natural amenity that has provided safe bathing since the 1930s. It is 91m long and 45m wide and created in a conservation area to shelter the swimmers from the occasionally rough Atlantic Ocean. The pool is open 24/7 – just once a year it is closed to be cleaned of algae. The best time to swim in the pool is during low tide. Lifeguards are on duty during peak times.
Bude Sea Pool’s Facebook page expresses its delight: 🏊💙🌎WHAT AN ACCOLADE! 🌎 💙🏊
