We are arranging a coached session for intermediate and advanced swimmers at 7:00pm on Monday 11 July to develop a variety of OWS race skills and techniques to improve effectiveness in open water.

The session is tailored for experienced swimmers including anyone who has attended one of our beginner sessions. We will cover skills such as; sighting, stroke technique, swimming in a group and effective drafting.

The session will take place during our usual Monday club session at Weir Wood, so pay for your swim as usual but the coaching is free to EGTC members. If you haven’t been to Weir Wood yet this season, you will also have to pay a £10 membership fee to be registered.

Changing rooms, toilets and hot showers are all available plus a hot drink afterwards. Please remember, you must have a wetsuit and bring a bright swim hat and flip flops or trainers to walk to / from the slipway. Please arrive in plenty of time to be changed and ready to start by 7:00pm – thank you.

You can swim laps around the usual circuit if you don’t want to join the coached session, but please reply to let me know if you intend to join the session so I know numbers.

Any questions to Martin
