Beginners' Open Water Swim will be on Thursday, April 11th and 18th, at Mission Bay's Ventura Cove (south of West Mission Bay Dr, next to the Bahia Hotel). We'll be 'toes in the water' at 6pm; a good number of folks arrive early, too. All you need is the desire to get out of the pool, goggles, and a brightly coloured swim cap (and don't let that stop you...we have extras!). Wet suits are highly recommended.

This session is primarily designed for beginner swimmers who are making the transition from the pool to open water, but all levels are welcome. We have a great group of dedicated swim buddies there to help with technique, racing strategies, and water safety. It is a very flexible workout to meet you wherever your need might be. We'll help make sure you have a good experience in the water for whichever race you're training.

Please let me know if you have any questions. See you Thursday!
