Not sure about joining an Open Session?

We also offer guided swims in small groups of 4-8 swimmers where you can take things at your own pace with some individual attention and tips on swimming.
 
Three types of guided swim are available:
  • Introduction to Open Water Swimming
  • Island Swim (approx. 800m)
  • Long Island Swim (approx. 1200-1600m)
 
Introduction to Open Water Swimming sessions include lake induction, advice on wetsuit fitting, safety induction, water entry and acclimatisation and a guided swim, accompanied by a safety boat.

Evaluation (‘sign-off’) for member sessions can also be undertaken if required.

Pre-requisites

Introduction sessions are suitable for anyone – no experience required – and all equipment can be provided.
 
Island & Long Island swims are for more experienced swimmers (not first-timers) looking to increase their distance or experience something different to the normal 400m or 800m loop. Ideal for anyone wanting to try ‘wild swimming’.

Equipment

Just bring your swimsuit and a towel for the showers. A pair of flip flops for walking down to the water is also a good idea.

Other items

Warm clothes!
Hot showers & heated changing rooms available plus café on site.

 

Times

Approx 1 hour session but allow 1.5 hours. Time includes for briefing & changing before swim.

Session Charges

Guided Swim £25 per person including wetsuit loan.
 

To book a session you will have to set up a webcollect account, this will make joining the club or attending other OWS sessions easier in future.
