Each session will last approximately 2 hours and include a theory presentation followed by around 45 - 60 minutes coaching in the water.

This is always a tricky question but here is a rough guide to help you decide,
If this is your first time in open water and you want to learn the essential skills of sighting and drafting or you feel nervous and struggle to relax in the open water you may benefit from this session. This session is aimed at swimmers who take longer than 8 minutes to complete 400m in the pool.
If you can swim a sub 8 minute 400m in the pool, you feel confident in the open water and want to learn some advanced techniques to improve your open water swim.
Don't panic you can borrow one of ours, you'll be asked if you'd like to borrow one when you book, if you click yes you will then be asked you height and weight (Sorry we know it's rude to ask!) so we can size you for a suit.
