Day 1
The Lakes await

 We meet at our first swim location at 1pm, likely to be a glorious lake in the lee of Helvellyn, England's favourite mountain. This guided swim and swim clinic will give you a chance to improve your stroke, or try a new stroke under the supervision of our qualified and experienced swim coaches. 

Be sure to bring your hot drinks flasks fully charged to accompany homemade cake before we head to the accomodation for rooming. 

Dinner with table wine will be followed by our famous 'Tame the Tides' talk in the lounge.
