What water temperature would tempt you back to open water swimming?
My first ever OW was about 9 degrees and I forced myself in – once swimming it was fine! Leigh Antonio
Back??!! It’s only too cold if you bounce off the surface! Lindsay Williams
Was 9 degrees in the first one this year – personally I’d go back now if I could, even for a quick 400m. Less weeds now the cold’s killed them too :) Lee Maxwell
A balmy 22 degrees, with a floating cocktail table? Victoria Cake Taala
I would probably say 10 degrees. Slateman, 2 yrs ago, was about that and it was doable. Too cold for me at themoment!! Sandy ‘Corfield’ Bebbington
Part of my training for the DECA UK in October at Eton Dorney is to carry on through the winter. This week our lake was back up to 1 degree, so at 6 it felt OK. Graham Smedley
