We are hoping to start the Crosby open water swim sessions on Saturday 29th April. As in previous years the sessions will run from 10a.m to 11.30 on Saturdays and 6p.m until 8p.m. on Mondays. The cost has risen to £4.80 for members [and £5.70 for non-members] Please bring proof of membership for discount.
A good wetsuit is advised with goggles and a bright swim hat essential. Coaching tips and advice are available from club coaches and experienced open water swimmers but the sessions are generally unstructured.Swimmers are expected to have competence in pool swimming before starting open water. There should be a briefing before each session explaining the course set out with marker buoys and advice on sighting,lake entry and exit etc. SAFETY COVER IS PROVIDED BY CROSBY LAKESIDE [canoes,r.i.b.s etc]
There is now a charge for parking on the Lakeside site so please be aware. I will post weekly news on the club facebook page.
