Our next popular Open Water Introduction sessions are starting in May 2022.

These sessions are aimed at swimmers new to open water swimming or those who feel they need to brush up on their open water skills to build their confidence for Open water swims. We cater for all levels, whether you want to just tip your toe in the water and try Open Water for the first time or whether you have a particular swim or triathlon event to aim for.

It is a 2.5 hr session run at Fell Foot Park, Windermere lake. (these are one off sessions not a course)

Session run: Sunday 09:30 – 12:00 (approx. finish time)

The session offers all aspects of open water swimming including:

  • Wetsuit choice, putting on the wetsuit, quick removal & choosing the right goggles.
  • Acclimitisation, entering the water and safety
  • Looking at the dreaded mass swim starts, dealing with anxiety, breathing techniques
  • Open Water skills including how to start, picking the right line (ensuring you don’t need to swim any further then you need to), sighting, navigation & turning around buoys
  • 1:5 ratio – coach to swimmer to ensure lots of attention for everybody.
  • Wetsuit hire available for £10 – various sizes available.
  • Lots of tea & cake before & after the session

Wild swimming – New in 2021, we are running three Wild swimming sessions for swimmers looking to try Wild Swimming who are not looking to take part in an Open Water event, but just want to enjoy the incredible beauty of outdoor swimming for fun. Please see – Introduction to Wild Swimming
