Done 3 events at Bucklers Hard, two Swashbucklers and a sprint (which no longer happens). All of them were alleged to be at slack tide. For two of them the tide was barely noticable. At one of the Swashbucklers, according to spectators, the gun went off, the water turned white as everyone started to swim, and no-one went anywhere! The out leg of that swim was tough, the return leg was fab
Tidal river swim is only fun if you're a reasonable swimmer.
