Open Water Awareness

How we look at open water swimming is always constantly changing. Currents can serve as salvation – or misfortune. Waves can push us towards our goal – or be the barrier to our success. Boats can be our guide – or issuers of choking exhaust. Whatever our perspective, the open water demands a heightened sense of awareness – an elevated level of knowledge – and an increased amount of information to be safe and successful.

Strategy and planning. Background and perspective. Equipment and training. This course provides you with this information. It is gleaned from four decades of experience and research from swimmers dating back nearly one hundred years.

This course covers all aspects of open water swimming from how to swim straight to training for solo channel swims.
