Open Water Swim
SAFETY IS STILL OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!
Now the serious bit is done, let’s talk about the sessions.
The next session will be on 20th September at Barry Island’s Whitmore Bay. We are running out of swim time so make sure you join us for this end of season session!
Please follow us on social for more updates. Registration is at 1815 for the advanced swim who will be swimming around the bays at 1830 and we will then register the beginners and improvers groups at 1830 – who will be swimming in the bay at 1845. The tide is at 1721.
IS IT TIME FOR YOU TO MOVE UP A GROUP???
We will be meeting at the Whitmore Bay (Barry Island beach) Lifeguard club. That’s the same end of the Prom as Marco’s Cafe.
As long as you can swim 100m un-supported without stopping then we can help you. This isn’t a swimming lesson. If you want one of those go to Heathwood swim and tell Dave we sent you! You might even get a discount! The sessions are designed to get you more comfortable with the sea and everything that goes with that!
WE FOCUS ON
Cold water immersion, Sighting, Currents, Waves, Tidal considerations, Drafting, Mass starts, Navigating around cans and buoys and generally enjoying a swim!
AND HELPING YOU WITH YOUR OPEN WATER CONFIDENCE
We also provide an experienced sea swimmer guide in each group to help once you’re out there. The sets are relatively small and we re- group at the end of each set to discuss, grow and learn. The session is about 60 minutes and you will be in the sea for about 45 mins total. You will need goggles, a swim hat and a wetsuit. If you are a skins swimmer then you need to get in touch with me so that we can discuss your skins experience and capabilities. We advise people to book on quickly as we limit the session numbers to get the best engagement.
Other than signing on to the event there isn’t that much admin apart from reminding you to read the Terms and conditions and have a next of kin contact number for us … so sign up, pay up and get your swim on!
