Introduction to Cold Open Water Swimming (30 minutes)

Our safety and coaching teams have consulted with leading cold-water experts to create a one-off session for experienced open water swimmers who want to learn more about swimming in cold water (i.e. outside of the traditional May- September season) and how to do it safely. This session will cover the essentials, such as respecting your limits, how to acclimatise, how to re-warm afterward, dynamic risk assessments, how to keep yourself and your swimming buddy safe.

Please note we recommend that only experienced swimmers swim with us during April due to water temperature.

Sunday: 9am & 10:30am
