They are aimed at openwater swimmers who want to swim through the winter months as part of a group while under the supervision of a safety paddler. The supervising paddler is there to direct and assist you if needed, he/she is not a swim coach therefore these sessions are NOT SUITABLE FOR NON-SWIMMERS

Wetsuits can be provided if required.
