What shoud I wear for Swim Serpentine?

Swim Serpentine allows swimmers to decide whether they want to wear a wetsuit or not if the water temperature is over 15 degrees. Non-wetsuit swimmers must wear a tow-float, which are available to purchase from Swim Secure.

Wetsuits, swimwear and swim accessories are available to purchase or hire from HUUB.
 

Swim hats will also be provided in various colours which will correspond to your start time.

Getting your gear right can make the difference between a good swim and a great swim. Check out the kit guides below for more information on the items available to you which can be helpful in open water swimming.
