WTC Open Water Swimming – Starts Monday 20th May
Wicklow Harbour – Ready to swim 7:30pm sharp


The Open Water season is upon us, and we will be starting the Official WTC Open Water session next Monday – 20th May.
Meet at the Harbour in Wicklow (park beside the old Ship Shape gym).

There will a short overlap (3 weeks) with the Monday Pool Swim Block – Coach John D will take the pool, and Coach Jamie will take the Open Water.

We will start with the basics and split into groups of experience and ability.

Keep an eye on the forum for details of each weeks session, as we will start to incorporate some brick sessions into the swim sets!

If you're swimming in Wicklow harbour at any time feel free to leave carkeys in the bunker on my balcony. Don't chance them under wheels etc.

Great first session last night, around 20+ in the water.

Split into 2 groups, beginners and advanced.

Beginners did some basic open water preparation skills, a short swim with spotting, practice breathing on both sides as we had a bit of wind swell.

Advanced did 2 laps of the boats building confidence and endurance with the wetsuits on

Well done to all, water temps were bearable.

See you all next week!

The OW swim is at the usual time folks 7.30 this evening, but a few are going for a run first about 5.30 if anyone wants to go along.
