Whether it’s a spontaneous dip at dusk or serious triathlon training, open water swimming has a magical quality. We’re surrounded by water on three sides so take the plunge on the gentle south coast – the world’s finest pool.
Open Water Swimming
Our coach Binney has swum in the cold water off the northern tip of Skye. Tubed down the whitewater of the river Dart, normally the preserve of kayakers, and taken a pre breakfast swim down the Amble emerging onto Lake Windermere just as the sun rose.
The sea is full of surprises, magical sea caves, sandy coves and smugglers’ inlets– let us show you the way.
Take the Plunge
We’ve teamed up with ‘In the wet stuff’ to bring you an open water swimming taster course in the clear waters around the Roseland Peninsula.
The package includes a three night stay at Hotel Tresanton including breakfast each morning plus four guided open water swims.
On Friday at 6pm there will be a welcome session where you will discuss your individual requirements and have your first taster swim session. There will be two swims on Saturday, a morning swim at 9.30am for 60 minutes and an afternoon swim at 3.30pm. The final wild swim, on Sunday morning, will bring together all of the skills you have learnt.
Things to Note
Participants must be able to swim 400m non stop and be confident that they can
swim up to 1600m with short breaks.
Swimmers will need their own wetsuit and goggles as well as warm clothing for after the swim. Beach towels will be provided.
All swims will be located within 15 miles of St Mawes and as transport is not provided a car is essential.
Swims can only take place if conditions are safe and suitable. Swims can be cancelled at late notice due to water quality or safety. Should this be the case the cost of each cancelled swim will be deducted from your final account.
On booking you will receive a full safety and information pack from ‘In the wet stuff’ as well as a swim assessment form which must be completed and returned to us prior to arrival.
Deposit and Cancellation
A 50% deposit is required on booking with the remainder to be paid at the end of the stay.
Should you cancel your booking with less than 21 days prior to arrival you will incur the loss of your deposit. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice you will be liable for the full cost of the stay.
If we cancel the event your deposit will be refunded to you.
