  • Description

    Forest Hill, London.

    Swimming teacher Wynne Owen-Smith puts a belt around her waist with a sponge holder in the centre. She gets into an outdoor pool and lies on her back in the water. A woman in a sequinned swimsuit hands her a model yacht sail, which fits into the holder. Wynne's feet are strapped to the end of the sail and she holds a cord attached to the other end in her mouth.

    Several shots of Wynne swimming about the pool with the sail tipped at a decidedly wonky angle. It looks very barmy! The sequinned swimsuit woman watches Wynne.
