I am planning a coached session to develop OWS race skills, for club members who have got OWS Triathlons coming up soon.  The details are: 
Open Water Swim Coached Session – Develop Swim Race Skills
18:30-19:30 Thursday 2 July 2015
Weir Wood Reservoir
Lead Coach – Martin Darlison
To benefit from this session, you must be comfortable and confident swimming in close proximity in a group as there is a chance of getting knocked about, as many of the drills will involve swimming as close as possible to others and treading deep water between drills.  We will cover a range of skills e.g. stroke considerations, sighting, tight group swimming, drafting, mass starts and turns.  The weather is warming up nicely so expect the water temperature to be around 18-20C.
You will need to pay on arrival, just outside the Sailing Club House (£8 if you are a first time swimmer at Weir Wood this season or £5 for regular swimmers) and you MUST wear a wetsuit and bright coloured swim cap.  I will cover a safety briefing at the start and explain the session outline.  Please be changed and ready by 18:30 latest for the safety briefing as you won’t be able to join in after that point and give yourself plenty of time to register.  Changing rooms, toilets and hot showers are available.
Please let me know on as soon as possible if you would like to join the session and I will look out for you on the day.
I look forward to hearing from you
Martin Darlison
