Summer Open Water Swim Sessions

  

Day:                  Mondays 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Dates:    Start 25 Apr to end Oct 2016 (shut between 8-31 Aug)
Place:   Weir Wood Reservoir, Priory Road, Forest Row, RH18 5HT
Cost:    £10 annual Weir Wood joining fee plus £6 per session
Facilities:   Changing rooms, toilets, showers, café, support boat & first aid


This is an exclusive EG Tri Club members only sessions on Mondays during the summer season and a fantastic opportunity to acclimatise for OWS races, get used to an open water environment and get some coaching on specific OWS skills.
 
Our session will run from 6:30pm until 7:30pm because swim sessions are light, weather & water temperature permitting.  There will be session plans to follow at all of the sessions, tailored for long distance, short distance and beginners. Some of the sessions will be coached (separate sessions for beginners and for intermediate to advance level), dates to follow.  We will also arrange some other events e.g. Aquathlons, swim races, BBQ.
 
You will need the following equipment….
Wetsuit (mandatory)
Hi-Viz or bright coloured swim hats (mandatory)
Towel & warm clothes for afterwards
Flip flops or trainers to walk to & from the jetty
 
We are also looking into the possibility of a wetsuit deal with a supplier – more news to follow.
