Open Water Swimming

For those of you keen to do a bit of open water swimming in the summer, you are almost spoilt for choice.

Venues for training generally start opening up for the season during April and May and with the rapid growth in the sport there are plenty of open water races too. There are races to suit everyone with distances from 1⁄2 a mile to the marathon 10k and in a variety of water conditions from lakes, reservoirs, rivers and the sea.

Training Venues

  • Jesus Green Lido, Cambridge, open May to September.
  • Redricks Lake, Sawbridgeworth opens on first weekend in April.
  • Gosfield Lake, Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings opens April.
  • River Cam open all year round!

If you have not done Open Water before please do talk to an experienced coach or other members for advice. Members from the club regularly attend these venues and will be happy to offer help and advice and we hope to offer some coached open water sessions at the beginning of the season.

Come on and dip your toe in the water.
