Winter Swimming 2018-2019

As you know we are absolutely thrilled that we are, again, open for Swim Sessions throughout the Winter Months. So far in October, we have recorded nearly 200 swims in temperatures ranging from 15.7 to 13.8 – plus 100 for our end of season night swim, which is amazing! November numbers were still high with 130+ swims and in December when temperatures dropped to 7.3 degrees we still welcomed over 60 visitors!

It’s great to see so many swimmers keen to carry on into the winter months so we are pleased to confirm we will continue to offer 3 sessions a week throughout November.

Winter Swim sessions will cost £10 each and will include a hot drink.

For December/January Sessions will be

  • Saturday 9-12am (morning)
  • Sunday 9-12am (morning)
  • Tuesday evening 5 – 6.30pm (evening)

So that we can manage the staffing of our sessions over the winter months, we are asking that our swimmers pre-book their individual winter sessions. This is a simple process which will only take a few moments and needs to be done by the evening before a session.

We have started the winter swims with the 400m loop, but as the water cools this loop will get smaller.

Dates and times of sessions will be published on our website on a month by month basis.

Don’t forget you’ll need your NOWCA band to swim!

We look forward to welcoming you all to our winter swim sessions.

**Should session numbers be very low, we may need to cancel the session.  You will be informed by text or email the evening before.
