We are super excited to announce our brand new winter swimming sessions. These are a series of swims throughout winter, the first 3 will be a trial run and then we’ll choose a date for a December swim. It’s important to recognise that these swims are only suitable for experienced open water swimmers, if you are new to open water swimming then we strongly recommend that you wait for our summer season to start next April. The water temperature will be cold, so these sessions are NOT suitable for anyone new to open water (cold) swimming. 

These sessions will be tow float compulsorily, even if you are wearing a wetsuit. This will help our team if you do need assistance in the water for whatever reason,  also helping to ensure that we are as socially distanced where possible.

The 300m course will be open as well as the training area, which we suggest you use if you are struggling with the temperature. We will have a warm drink ready for you at the end of your swim.

Changing rooms and showers will be accessible after your swim, we do ask that you turn up to the swim ‘beach ready 🥶❄️😅’ and only use the changing facilities after your swim. This will help control capacity as we will have to limit use. 

Prices are as follows – Includes a warm drink. 

  • Members: £7
  • Non-Members: £8
  • Wetsuit hire: £7 or £6 for members

Non-members need to sign up for free membership or you can buy the annual £10 membership to unlock member benefits for a year.
