Open Water Swimming

The Club is lucky enough to have access to a local open water venue which we use throughout the summer months.  Open Water usually starts after the Easter Holidays and into early May.

KIT:

The only additional kit needed is a wetsuit.

We have several wetsuits of all shapes and sizes to hire out.  This is on a first come first served basis.

You can download a hire form here: EQUIPMENT HIRE 2018

Timing:

We will be sorting these out after the Easter break.  You will only need to bring your wetsuit on a Sunday.  We do not train in our wetsuits at any other session (except at our OW venue… see below).

We will release dates for the opening of our open water venue just as soon as it’s warm enough to train there.  It’s approx. 6 miles from Wellington and very safe – even for our younger athletes.  Sessions usually take place on Saturday at 2pm.

In order to swim at the open water venue each individual will need to complete the disclaimer form which can be found here
