Welcome to the Gower Open Water swimming Training sessions

Marseillan Plage swim sessions

Having tried out a pair of Magic5 custom fitted swim goggles over the summer, I would recommend them to both pool and Open water Swimmers - the Geometric shape enables the swimmer to sight more in open water, and the custom fit via an app face scanner, enables a good fit with no leaks - hopefully by Autumn we will have arranged a partnership with Magic5 to offer a good discount for the purchase of Magic5 goggles

Background

The first open water swim training camp in Wales, was set up in 1990 by myself (in conjunction with Triathletes Swansea and the University Triathlon club) with Steve Trew (BTA) as guest coach. The open water training sessions were held at Three Cliffs Bay, while lectures and practical swim coaching were held at the Swansea University Sports Centre.



Subsequent training sessions were held at Langland Bay and Pobbles Bay on Gower, until 1994.


Triathletes of all abilities are welcome: from beginners to advanced
