Don't fall in the 42 degree water
Cold water swimming is enjoyable year round from Melbourne to Scandinavia, Washington State to England and Ireland, and San Francisco to Germany. For most, cold water swimming is swimming in water under 60 degrees F (15 degrees C ) without a wetsuit. For others, it is swimming under 50 degrees F (10 degrees C). For the most hardy, swimming under 40 degrees F (4.4 degrees C) is an invigorating challenge.
