I’d never tried open water swimming before but I joined the OW Virgins course with SwimOpen and it was absolutely fantastic – I’d highly recommend it. I’d always done a bit of pool swimming to keep fit but i’d never actually tried open water swimming, I wanted to challenge myself so I gave it go. Tom and Kat are both excellent teachers, I learnt all the open water swimming basics and now I’m a total open water convert. There really is no comparison between open water swimming and pool swimming, I just love getting my wetsuit on and getting closer to nature. Its a really great way to wind down after a busy week. Doing the OW Virgins course has improved my swim confidence so much that I’m now training for my first Triathlon in the summer. Wish me luck!
