Intro to Open Water Workshops

Knockburn Loch 9am-12 noon £40

22nd June, 20th July, 17th August 2024 

***All participants must be able to swim 200 metres continuously, any stroke***

MEET

Join Craig and Jacquie as they share their experience and knowledge of swimming in the north east’s lochs, rivers and sea over the last 8 years.
The aim is that you leave this 3 hour workshop with all you questions answered and armed with the knowledge to go and explore Open Water dipping/swimming safely on your own (with a swim buddy or group of course!).

 

LEARN

  • How to cope with the cold

  • Equipment and wetsuits- what do you need?

  • What to consider when swimming in the sea/loch/river

  • Safe local swim spots

  • Joining local swim groups

  • Useful apps and websites.

  • In the comfort of the conference room

 

  ESCORTED SWIM
Escorted safe entry into the loch and a swim with the chance to practice putting your head in the water, sighting and rescue positions.
You choose whether you swim/dip in a costume only or a wetsuit and you decide the  length of time you spend in the water.
Then hot showers, change and regroup with hot drinks and feedback.

FACTSHEET and PHOTOS

A factsheet with everything covered on the day and more will be emailed to you after the workshop.

Photos taken on the day will be available free on our Facebook page or can be sent to individuals on request.
