Group Sea Swim Sessions


Develop your sea swimming skills alongside others in our regular group coaching sessions. A block of 4 sessions is £40 (£10 a session).


Join other like-minded swimmers at our weekly sessions in the sea. In our group sessions, we cover front crawl swimming technique, open water/race skills such as sighting and buoy turns, and aim to develop your abilities with distance and pace.

These sessions take place on Tuesdays and run in 4 week cycles. Sessions are £10 each, pay for 4 weeks in advance. You can join a group session part-way through the cycle if there is space, also there is sometimes space to join a session ad-hoc and ‘pay as you go’, which is £15 a session (in these cases please email us to book). You must be able to swim 200m and you must be in a wetsuit to join the Tuesday sessions.

There will be a session at Southbourne Beach at 12:30, and a session at Branksome Dene Chine or Durley Chine (TBC) at 18:30, both lasting 45 minutes. The lunchtime session will start a month earlier and likely end a few weeks later after the season, due to the weather/temperature/daylight.

Next steps: upon booking a spot on the course, we will be in touch with further information plus registration form for completion.

After the session you will also be able to join our private Wave 23 social swim pod Facebook group, for arranging social swims, other Wave 23 organised swims and all things sea swimming!

In the case of inclement weather, sessions will be rearranged. Please note that future dates may shift if we have to postpone sessions to the following week.
