Ability may take you to the top, but it takes character to stay there

Open water swimming takes place in outdoor bodies of water such as oceans and lakes.  The beginning of the modern age of open water swimming is sometimes taken to be 3rd May 3 1810, when Lord Byron swam several miles to cross the Hellespont (now known as the Dardanelles) from Europe to Asia.
