Water temperature

Going on average water temperatures for the end of June over the last few years, expect the water temperature in the lake to be between 14°C and 16°C. The temperature varies depending on the amount of rainfall and sunshine leading up to the event, wind can also play a part. We will keep you updated on the water temperature in the run up to the event.

WETSUIT or SKINS (skins swimmers will need previous experience of similar time in similar water temperatures)


If you cancel 2 months prior to the event you will get a full refund, thereafter there are no refunds, but entries can be transferred either to other swim friends or to the following year's event. The sooner you let us know of any changes the better.

Please note that in the highly unlikely event that any swim is cancelled due to extreme conditions which include very high winds or dense fog impeding the view of the swimmers by the safety cover, we will endeavour to arrange an alternative swim, or transfer your entry to the following year.
