Summary

A compilation showing Brighton Swimming Club members on the beach, dressed in fancy dress and in drag, pretending to 'shave' other swimmers whilst pinning them down and then dunking them in the sea. The group go on a road trip visiting Monaco and Spain (Barcelona?) where they take in the sights; swim and water ski; see traditional dancers and watch a bullfight. At the airport, they film two cars being loaded onto a Bristol Freighter plane through its nose doors.
