Join us in our Open Water Programmes in Dorrins Strand, Sligo
Pick from three programmes in 2023. All are 6 weeks long.
Dipper to Swimmer
Dippers to Swimmers is a programme designed to appeal to those that don't have the ability or confidence to participate in our Beach to Buoy. This programme will bring the swimmer back to basics and will strive to bring the swimmer from a casual dipper to one who can swim 50 metres comfortably.
Beach to Buoy Programme
Dreaming of swimming out to that first buoy? This is the course for you. The programme is designed to improve confidence and technique in open water. Participants should be able to swim 50m, with a goal of completing 700m at the end of the programme.
