When I was much younger, I used to win medals in the pool.
When I joined the Australian Army and was sent to Armoured Corps, I had to be able to swim 200 metres as part of the qualification, because the Australian version of the M113 armoured personnel carrier had a nasty habit of sinking from time to time, if the bilge pump failed during a water crossing.
The army had to retain its own group of divers to recover the damned things.1

Well enough to not die in relatively calm waters, yes... but not well at all! Typically in the ocean or a lake I don't go deeper than where I can touch unless I'm right by a boat and with people because I am not confident in my ability to swim to safety if I get scared or the water gets rough or anything else happens.1
