Swimming Wild - Beginners and refreshers
Time & Location
About the event
Join a relaxed beginners group session in a secluded north-west Lakes location where we enjoy a peaceful setting for your first wild swim. This is my final beginners session for 2019 - sign up and make the most of late summer swims.
Beginners and refreshers is aimed at new and nearly new outdoor swimmers. It's my usual beginners session with an extended invite to swimmers who are just getting started in outdoor swimming and want to brush up on their skills.
Guided at a gentle pace, the session will include an introductory chat, kit check, walk to the water, guided swimming, and warm refreshments after. The session involves an easy walk to the water and changing in the open air.
There is no pressure to swim a particular stroke or distance however you should be able to swim continuously for at least 200m to take part. You should also be able to tread water for at least five minutes and be comfortable swimming out of your depth. The emphasis is on swimming wild not miles.
Tow floats, swim caps, and towelling robes provided, along with a hot drink and snack. On booking a confirmation email will be sent with payment details, usually within 24hrs.
Full equipment hire is available. Dog and non-swimming spectator friendly.
£55 per person including wetsuit hire, or £45 per person if you have your own wetsuit.
