Are you a first responder or rescue person??

As an auldt I just take a swim for my condition, but somethimes they haveat the club one (or more) lessons about rescue swimming, the one who are interested can take part of it. Last lesson was one like that, and I decided for a skirt.
Welcome. No, I have never swum in a skirt. Last time I swam in the Netherlands was on a fine September day not far from Enkhuizen on the Ijsselmeer when I was on board an old gaffer barge with my old German Shanty-choir. Our skipper hove to and trailed lines aft, maintaining about half a Knot of forward speed. Most of us went over board and swam in the 20 degree warm water, hitching a ride holding on to the trailing warps, which was fun.
On the following afternoon he came to a total stop and we most of us swam right round the ship. Murky water though, not like the clear Mediterranean.
