Your coach

I'm Rowan. Find out how I can work with you to be the outdoor swimming coach you want and need.

Why swim outdoors?

Open water swimming is getting more and more popular. Why? Because it does wonders for your wellbeing. It makes you stronger and fitter and has huge benefits for your mental health.

Better technique

Wild swimming in the sea, marine lake, river or loch is better when you are confident and comfortable. Learn how to calm your breathing. Improve your front crawl or breaststroke, learn freestyle and open water swimming skills like sighting. Train for open water swimming events and triathlons or improve your technique for smooth and stress-free swimming.


Better coaching 

I'm passionate about swimming outdoors for better physical and mental health whoever you are. I coach by working with you to reach your goals. Whether you want to swim a bit further, a bit faster or acclimatise to winter swimming, we can get there together.
