Swimmers enjoying the wonderful water on a beautiful day.


We cater for all levels, whether you want to just tip your toe in the water and try Open Water for the first time & look to do wild swims or whether you have a particular swim or triathlon event to aim for.
It is a 2.5 hr session run at Fell Foot Park, Windermere lake. (these are one off sessions not a course)
Each session runs from 10 – 12.30pm, except the June course which is 9.30 – 12pm.
The session offers all aspects of open water swimming including:
Wetsuit choice, putting on the wetsuit, quick removal & choosing the right goggles.
Acclimitization, entering the water and safety
Looking at the dreaded mass swim starts, dealing with anxiety, breathing techniques
Open Water skills inc how to start, picking the right line (ensuring you don’t need to swim any further then you need to), sighting, navigation & turning around buoys
Wild swimming – new for this year, we will also be covering Wild swimming in our sessions for those swimmers who are not looking to take part in an Open Water event, but just want to enjoy Outdoor swimming or Wild swimming. (Please detail on your registration form if you have an event or just looking to try open water.
