    Hi, I was in Plymouth Hooe last week and this afternoon. Yes it was cold. to the point of having red feet when I got out. it was managable though, after the first 400feet you kinda forget about the cold.

    It must be time now to 'take the plunge!' now!
  • River swam in France last week and off to Heron lake this Saturday with a gang of like minded mental people.

    Bring it - no boots, gloves or neoprene hat either. I'm gonna be cold.

    Was in the sea this weekend in Bude and it was gorgeous...well a bit chilly but no where near as bad as I thought it would be!!

    Swam at lakeside Multisports Eastleigh 2 weeks ago and the water was between 10 and 12 degrees - was actually warmer than it was walking to the lake. As said above after the first 400m it was fine anyway and actually quite nice
  • not quite open water swimming, but i was surfing in mawgan porth last weekend, water was very cold, but i stayed in for 3 hours so it couldnt have been that cold!
