I have taken a few swims deep sea, with the sails down, in windless conditions, and in my opinion all you are doing is stepping down on the food chain a few notches. It is pretty spooky!
Why? Because of sharks? There are just as many sharks around the shorelines as there are far out to sea. If you would be willing to go for a swim in 20 feet of water in Tampa Bay, then going for a swim in 5,000 feet of water in the middle of the Atlantic is really no different.
