Open water swimming can be dangerous if you are not adequately trained or medically fit.
We would STRONGLY advise the following:
If you haven’t trained enough – don’t swim
If you had a large night out the night before – don’t swim
If you’re not feeling well in any way or have been sick – don’t swim
If you’ve taken anything that could put added strain on your heart
(eg multiple energy drinks) – don’t swim
If you’ve been taking narcotics – don’t swim
DON’T TAKE A CHANCE. BE A SAFE SWIMMER.
