Open Water Swimming

We are pleased to be able to offer club members a new Open Water venue to swim for 2018. Having worked closely with COLT in the winter months we can now offer Open Water swimming for members at just £3 per session.

Throughout the summer months (May – September ) the club holds open water swimming sessions at the South Lakeland Leisure Village near Carnforth. This a great venue, the water is regularly tested for its quality, and there is always a safety canoe present.

Swims take place on alternate Monday evenings at 7pm starting with the first Monday in May (water temperature permitting). During July and August swims take place weekly before reverting back to alternate weeks in September.
