Wetsuits can help add buoyancy and potentially improve your swimming technique. Many believe that you are faster with a wetsuit so we try to find out! However, changing out of a wetsuit is not always easy and can add a delay. For our experiment, Heather and Mark swim 400m in both of the suits and add the time it takes taking off their wetsuit. We extrapolated these results to give a more accurate representation of a longer swim. The presenters then get their science glasses on to analyse the data!
