Hints and tips to make the dip safe and successful;

  • The water will be cold, so if you're not used to open water swimming, don't jump in, instead go in slowly allowing your body to adjust to the temperature of the water.
  • When you are in the water remember to breathe. Try breathing in for 5 and out for 5.
  • Don't spend too long in the water
  • After you leave the water it's best to get changed into warm clothes that are easy to put on, such as joggers or pyjamas. Bring a dressing gown.
  • When you're out of the water, get your arms and upper body warm first
