Water Safety

Coaching

Open water swimming is a different experience from swimming in the pool and many either get nervous in open water or first need to develop skills such as sighting to enjoy swimming outdoors.

We run training throughout the season and if you're new to open water we highly recommend attending one of our courses to make sure you enjoy your first swims outdoors.
