It was a hot day. The water seemed a bit cold when I first got in, but 
after I started swimming I didn't notice it anymore.

I think so. It was hard to read the GPS inside the tupperware container so 
I didn't rely on it too much. Also, I expected the arrow to be always 
pointing in the wrong direction ("hold level"). I checked it maybe 3 times 
while I was swimming and got to a point where it said I was within 10 
meters. But when I looked down all I could see was darkness! I was ready 
to give up and started swimming back to shore, when I looked down again 
and saw the dock! Then I was very glad to have read the clue on the cache 
page and spotted the marker a minute later. I think the cache probably was 
within 10 or 15 meters of the spot where I checked the GPS.

Thanks again for the cache,
