Anita said about her experience: “My wild swimming experiences have all been in Italy, Switzerland and Australia before, so I approached the idea of a cold English lake with trepidation. I thought I could always do a paddling print if it was too freezing! Actually once I was in it was glorious, and quite different to other lake swims I’ve done. I even went back the next day and got caught up in a sponsored swim, so managed a kilometre or more! Under the water was really black and cold and the surface of the water was silvery and magically reflected the grey sky. Also rain on the water was amazing.”
