Open Water Swim
SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!
Now the serious bit is done, let’s talk about the sessions.
This is our last session this season so it’s time to put all that good stuff we have practiced into… er… practice😀! We will do a group warm up and then there wil be a linear swim across Whitmore Bay with varying turn distances – so you can do short or long loops.
The next session will be on September 12th at Barry Island’s Whitmore Bay at the Western end shelter. Please follow us on social for more updates. Registration at 0900 and swim at 1000.
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 (ours are 5ft tall – so hopefully you won’t miss them)!
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 40 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.
We will send you a pre med doc and a TC doc when you book in – please print and sign before bringing with you on the night. This is important as it’s your track and trace form as well.
