According to the English Channel FAQ at the New York Marathon Swimming
the water temperature is right around 60 degrees. The water right now at
Bodega in the ocean is measuring 56 degrees (Spring is generally colder than
summer) and there is no warming influence from the shallow Bay waters sourth
of the San Mateo Bridge. I don't know how cold Third Ave generally is but I
don't think that it is below 60 in the summer. If it is all those guys in
shorties are really mas macho!

Icy english channel!!!?
correction: although not the Caribbean or the Mediterranean sea the
temperature of the english channel water is much warmer than the Bay. The
Gulf Stream keeps it mild.
