About the event
Started swimming wild this year and don't want to stop? If you are thinking about swimming through your first winter then this workshop is for you. Join me and a small friendly group to learn the skills and confidence to take on cooler temperatures, deal with adverse conditions and manage your safety. Suitable for wetsuit swimmers, swimmers wishing to move from wetsuit to skins, and everyone in-between.
Based at Buttermere Old School, this in-person workshop. It's ideal for people who are already confident outdoor swimmers during the warmer months, and are considering extending their season into winter. It's a relaxed day of swimming, practical advice, discussion, cake, and warm shelter. Learn how to safely access winter water, discuss what you might need to wear, or not need, how to plan for different weather conditions, and safety considerations for swimmers and onlookers. There are two swims and two short walks (no more than a mile), and during this workshop and we have warm dry facilities for warming up post-swim.
Refreshments are included (bring your own lunch), kit hire available.
