ONSHORE Podcast: Ep #002 -Dee Greenwood


Date: 14 June 2020
Interview number: 002
Interviewee: Dee Greenwood, Brighton Iceberger
Brighton Baths, Brighton, Melbourne


We met up with Dee Greenwood, a self-confessed ‘crusty mermaid’ who is a regular open water swimmer out of Brighton, Melbourne.

A member of the Brighton Baths, you can find Dee swimming in the baths (where she enjoys the hot shower and hot coffee close by) or doing laps of Dendy Beach – that’s the one with the brightly coloured bathing boxes.


A little snippet

In this snippet from the full podcast interview, we talk about how ‘delightful’ it is to swim in the dark and cold… and what Dee’s thinking about on her way down to the water each morning.

I have an unnatural fear that there’s going to be a floating head… there’s a buoy out there and sometimes you can’t see it properly, and it just bobs up, and you think ‘ooo’, you know it’s there every time, but I think ‘there’s the floating head’, so I call it the floating head
