This is the Open Water Swimming Agreement that you will be requested to agree with when you sign in for a session.

These small group coached sessions have been designed around three specific levels of need / interest:
 
1) Triathletes and Open Water Swim Racing where you can gain confidence in essential race skills such as turning fast, reducing unwanted extra distance by swimming straight and maximising incremental speed from effective drafting.
 
2) Open Water Swimmers attempting Sportives or Mass start swims who need to know what to expect on event day and learn (or be reminded of relevant skills such as water acclimation, swimming straight and turning effectively. 
 
3) Complete beginners to open water wanting to "dip their toe in" metaphorically and physically in a safe environment with helpful feedback and advice to maximnise enjoyment of open water but without the worry of learning race skills.
 
Through friendly enthusiastic instruction and motivating guidance we aim to inspire you with the knowledge and confidence to achieve your open water swim goals, at your  chosen level.
