Do I have to wear a wetsuit?

Wetsuits are not compulsory. The water is currently around 17 degrees, and may get a little cooler. If you are not acclimatised to swimming in cold water without a wetsuit, we recommend that you wear one.

If you wish to hire a wetsuit, we have an arrangement with a wetsuit supplier who will be supplying Orca open water suits, at a reduced rate of £10 /wk, £5 on the day rate (booked in advance).

Please contact Jason Blood -  j.blood@me.com /  07972 266261 to make bookings, quoting London City Swim.
