Open water swimming has been proven to:

  1. Improve sleep
  2. Increase happiness
  3. Boost the immune system
  4. Preventing and managing long-term health conditions

We want to give children the opportunity to experience these benefits in a fun, safe and engaging session.

We do not take any responsibility for the arrival or departure. We would however advise that all participants (and spectators) respect social distancing, especially on land. As spectators, please be aware of the size of your group.
