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
