Thurs 6 pm Sea Swim Sessions

Thursday sea swim sessions are the only official coached sea swim training sessions in Wellington. The session is ideal for swimmers new to open water swimming situations or those swimmers who feel they want to continue learning but mix it up in a fun and challenging group training sessions.

Swimmers need to swim a minimum of 200 m non-stop in a pool situation.

Once you arrive at the session you will be split into groups by ability and coached within the group. We learn skills such as sighting, navigation, management of wave action, rounding buoys, how to start well, how to manage large group situations, etc. Along with the skill work comes the fitness and confidence improvements. 

We use Freyberg Beach as our base learning area however if it's windy we move around to Hataitai Beach. Click on the info button below, to the left, to learn more. Register before coming along. Please read the info on the link below.
