I can do it a bit, but not that well. If I ended up in water and couldn't reach the shore, I wouldn't last long.

I can't swim at all. I'm in danger almost immediately if i have to swim and can't reach ground under my feet.

Until holidays, I couldn't swim at all, and school wasn't helpful.
Since there was a swimming pool near of us during our sojourn, my father decided to teach me how to doggy paddle (what school don't teach), then it became suddenly easier. I was proud of myself since water was one of my biggest fear. But I still don't have awesome skills, but I guess I can stay aflot (as long as I'm not in a deep lake of course).

It's a useful skill to have! ^^

It is!
It's apparently mandatory in my school.

I see.
Honestly that's one of the reason of why I tried to.

I am really good at swimming but don't take part in competitions. My granddad used to be a swimming coach and he taught me.

While I don't swim competitively anymore, I used to, for quite some time. I can still swim very well.

I'm actually between the fourth and fifth option, since all I can do is dog paddle my way to the surface, but if I have something to hold on to rather it be in the pool or open water like a lake or beach or river, I should be fine.

I meant swimming without objects to hold onto ^^

I can swim, my form is just shit and I have very little strength due to a condition so if I couldn't find land I'd be fucked XD

I am capable of swimming, however I am not able to due to medical reasons creating high risk of ear infection =m=

;o; yeah, it really does suck. I'll be having surgery late August so hopefully after I've recovered from that I will be able to swim risk-free orz

I love to swim, but I'm not a very strong swimmer. I can swim well enough if I'm completely under water, but can't hold my breath long. When it comes to like front/back strokes and such, I suck. I just doggy paddle if my head is above the water and I can't touch the ground
