- Clevedon Marine Lake
An introduction to outdoor swimming, this session is for complete beginners swimmers who want to learn more about this wonderful sport. Find out what to wear, what to bring, and how to acclimatise to cold water. Learn about currents, tides and the outdoor swimming code of conduct. Learn where you can and can't swim and how to find out about groups and wild swim spots. We'll start with a talk and safety briefing before taking a dip in Clevedon's beautiful marine lake. This tidal pool is a safe, accessible spot ideal for an introduction to outdoor swimming. You'll need to be over 16 years old and comfortable with being in deep, cold water where you can't see the bottom. You need to be able to swim 200m (eight lengths of a swimming pool) using any stroke. If you are nervous about open water or can't swim this kind of distance, please book a one-to-one session. **The beauty of outdoor swimming is that we're at the mercy of the elements. Please note that I may cancel this session if the weather is against us or I don't have enough people to make a group.
Life happens and sometimes, with the best will in the world, one of us will have to cancel or rearrange a session. You cancel: If you need to cancel a session, please let me know at least 24-hours beforehand so that I can give the slot to somebody else. If there’s less than 24-hours to go, I won’t be able to give you a refund. My number is 07541462112. I cancel: I will only cancel if there are weather warnings, the water quality is below par or if I need to deal with illness or an emergency! I will either reschedule or refund your sessions. Occasionally, I may need to cancel if there aren't enough people to make up a course or session.
