Guidelines and advice on open water swimming:

⚠️ Never swim alone

⚠️ Make sure you can be seen

⚠️ “Get in warm, get out warm” – More experienced swimmers should remember 2 minutes per water degree Celsius (15 degrees = 30 minutes)

⚠️ Check the wind and weather forecast

⚠️ Check the tides by using an app such as ‘Tides Near Me’ and remember that it is much safer to swim on a rising tide than on a falling tide

⚠️ For less experienced swimmers, swim within your depth and stay within your depth

⚠️ Listen to your body and tailor your swim to how you are feeling on the day

⚠️ Be aware of other dangers such as weever fish and jellyfish (especially Lions Maine and Portuguese Man of War)

⚠️ If you have a medical condition, please consult with your doctor before taking to open water swimming
