Description

Wild swimming has so many health benefits, both physical & mental but any open water swimming has risks and in winter, these are significantly increased with colder temperatures & wilder weather. Our seas can be beautiful but also unpredictable & dangerous.

There are many groups of friends and like minded people enjoying swimming regularly but you are ultimately responsible for your own safety.

Session includes..

  • What to bring/essential kit
  • How to plan a safe swim
  • How to check for dangers & minimise risk
  • What to do if you get into trouble
  • How to help others
  • Essential post swim info.

Adults only. (12-17yrs may be able to join on request – please get in touch prior to booking).
