  2. building confidence in cold water
  3. working on any open water worries/anxieties
  4. adapting stroke technique (breaststroke, front crawl or even butterfly) to optimise swimming in a wetsuit
  5. improving open water skills such as sighting and turning
  6. preparing for triathlon and open water events/races
  7. discovering the joys of swimming outdoors
  8. introducing the whole family to enjoying open water swimming together
