Introduction to Open Water Course

Sunday 12th August 2018

Event Details

Utilising one of North Wales best open water venues this course is ideal for swimmers looking to make the transition from pool swimming to open water or those who wish to build on their confidence and skill in open water.

Based at Park in the Past in Hope the course will be backed by full safety cover and run by Christine White, British Triathlon High Performance Level 3 Coach. The course will cover:

  • Water Safety (Swim Safe Techniques)
  • Wetsuit Use, Equipment and Skin Swimming
  • Acclimatisation
  • Breathing
  • Sighting
  • Deep Water Start
  • Group Swimming
  • Swim Exit Routine

By the end of the morning you may not be quite ready for the channel but certainly more relaxed and well equipped to venture into your open water journey.

To take part you should be a competent pool swimmer who can swim 2 to 300m.

To get the most from the course you will ideally have a wetsuit although we anticipate the water temperature still being in excess of 20 degrees so non wetsuit is an option! You will however need to have a tow float.

To provide the correct level of attention numbers are strictly limited to 8 swimmers
