David Sawyers, whose great great grandfather started The Brighton Swimming Club 150 years ago is disabled by arthritis whilst on land. This film on “Against the Tide” is a testament to all that the sea brings to his mind, body and spirit. Told entirely from the sea this story reconnects us with the importance of sea-swimming.
