Sea Swim Familiarisation Sessions

Our popular sea swim familiarisation sessions will be running through August leading up to our event in September.

It’s a great opportunity to get some open water swim practice with experienced swimmers on hand, especially if you’re new to sea swimming as its quite different to the pool!

We’ll be meeting by the Moot Hall on Crag Path so bring a towel, goggles, hat and preferably wetsuit (but not essential).

Call Tony on 07719 919484 to confirm your attendance or if you have any questions or concerns about the swim.

The dates for the familiarisation sessions are as follows:

Sun 5th Aug 8:30am
Sun 12th Aug 8:30am
Sun 19th Aug 8:30am
Thurs 23rd Aug 6:30pm
Sun 26th Aug 8:30am
Thurs 30th Aug 6:30pm
Sun 2nd Sept 8:30am
Thurs 6th Sept 6:30pm
Sun 9th Sept 8:30am

Please arrive 15 mins early for a prompt start.

If a session needs to be cancelled due to weather conditions we’ll post an update here. Please note, these familiarisation swims are not fully lifeguarded.

Hope to see lots of you there!

Sea Swim Familiarisations…

Sea Swim Familiarisations (aimed initially at novice and inexperienced sea swimmers but not exclusive), take place regularly and start at the Moot Hall on dates and times below:

Thursday 31st August – 18:00

Saturday 2nd September – 08:00

Thursday 7th September  – 18:00

 

For anyone who wishes to practice sea swimming before the event there will be familiarisation sessions held each week (weather permitting).  The meeting place will be outside the Moot Hall and the direction of swim will be decided on the day.  Experienced swimmers will be on hand to give moral support and guidance in and out of the water, however there will be no safety cover available and individuals must take responsibility for their own safety.  Wet suits are advised but not compulsory.  If people wish to take part in a session they must notify one of the organisers at least 24 hrs prior to the session.
