Open Water Training Swim

Cornwall
swim - Up to 20 people

Description

Our weekly, one hour long open-to-all training sessions are great for anybody wanting to swim in nature or train in an environment and make improvements specific to their goals. These structured sessions use a looped course to allow for differing swim abilities and their focus will be on both fitness and skills development to make you a better, more confident open water swimmer.


Making improvements in your swimming ability need not be confined to the black line in the pool, and if your aims involve open water swimming then swimming indoors has its limitations; these sessions allow you to swap a pool session for a structured open water training swim.


The venue may vary slightly to accommodate weather and tidal conditions but all will be within 10 mins of our base on Port Gaverne beach. The venue will be confirmed 24 - 48hr prior to the session on social media and via email.

What to bring

It is compulsory that all swimmers wear:


  1. A brightly coloured swim hat.
  2. Goggles.
  3. A wetsuit (swim specific ideally). If you are an experienced non-wetsuit swimmer please get in touch to discuss eligibility to participate.


We also highly recommend wearing a tow float wherever possible (especially for sea sessions).



Physical requirements

  1. Can swim 400m unaided < 12 mins.
  2. Some experience of swimming in open water (Lake, Sea (preferable) or other).
  3. Must swim front crawl.
