We had a break for Christmas in Italy and only got back a few days ago.
I have already been swimming and kayaking over the last couple of days in Falasarna. I measured the water temperature there at 16.2° C! A big drop from the almost 20 degrees I measured less than a month ago.
I don’t have a thermometer with me today. The water feels chilly. I have my full wetsuit with me.
With the sun warmth, it is quite comfortable to enter the water and swim for a while.
I log about 1.4Km in half an hour. I feel fast too! A good swim for 2020.
December is always full of crisp winter days. The air temperature is still good, just below 20°C most of the time, and the sea temperature… even better!
So on this sunny day I went to my favourite spot in Kissamos bay, along Viglia beach in the South-West corner, for a swim in the clear water.
I decided to go wearing short fin for extra leg exercise. I measured the sea temperature at about 21°C. I had a little breeze while I was out in the water, but as it happens it dropped as soon as I got back to shore.
