If you’re a swim you’ll have most likely heard the chat of being visible in the water!
Why is this important?
Well it makes you easy to spot not just by folk / passers by on the shore but other water users such as kayakers, SUPers, Sailors and more! As a swimmer in open water, you can easily go unnoticed. Being visible in bright colours makes you easy to spot not just by folk / passers by on the shore but other water users such as kayakers, SUPers, sailors and more!
Brightly coloured swim caps and tow floats are great ways to make yourself more visible - colours to consider are: Neon Oranges, Greens, Yellows and Pinks!
My personal favourite visibility colours are: Oranges and Greens 🧡💚
