After being called off for two days because of the weather, thousands of swimmers finally took part in the Great North Swim on Windermere.
People of all abilities took to the water to raise money for their chosen charities. They were joined by elite swimmers and Olympic who used the race as a training session.
High winds meant races couldn't go ahead on Friday or yesterday as organisers say they couldn't guarantee the safety or participants.
Those due to take part in Friday's event were given the opportunity to swim today in a rescheduled event. Swimmers hoping to take part yesterday however, were given a full refund.
