Note, this is not a coached session but I'm happy to give general swim advice and encouragement!

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

After a successful season in 2020 the small group session swim sesions are back for 2021. This season we will extend the group size to a maximum of 10 people (to keep it personal). Minimum age with participating adult is 15yrs.
Two swim experiences will be offered: Level 1 is for recreational swimmers, mainly swimming breaststroke, and potentially new to open water. Depending on conditions on the night we will swim gently out into the lake in calm conditions to admire the views, or we may explore the sheltered creek area and bird life that live there. There will be plenty of time to chat and enjoy the freedom of the lake. Level 2 is for more confident recreational or sportive swimmers, mainly swimming frontcrawl who want to venture out a little further into the lake, even if it's a little choppy, and view the 3 church spires from beyond the creek. My objective is to make this a fun experience to remember.
