Maybe you’re new to CIBBOWS and want to swim in a group instead of on your own, or you are an established member who just wants company in the ocean. These small group one hour swims are a great way to meet up with others and perhaps find other people your speed to plan future swims with. Medium pace group swim is designed for those people who like to take the medium or slower lane in a pool (1:45+ for 100 yards). Medium/Fast pace group swim is designed for those people who like to take the medium or fast lane in a pool (<1:45 for 100 yards). You will head out with an experienced group leader and swim as a group, pausing at each jetty to allow slower swimmers to catch up. Medium pace groups will swim three quarters of a mile to a mile out and back, parallel to shore, past the jetties. Medium/Fast pace groups will swim at least one mile. Slower swimmers may bring fins. Note: This swim will be in deeper water and is not a learn to swim program. If you’re a beginner or prone to panic attacks, try the introduction to open water or small group coaching. Please be sure to hydrate beforehand, bring extra water, and plenty of sunscreen and read our essentials page before attending. We will swim rain or shine, but we do not swim in thunderstorm conditions.
The hour class will include:
- Orient swimmers to the swim plan for the day
- Check the current
- Check group speed
- Instruct swimmers on buddy and group swim technique
- Rotate swim leader
- Have fun!
Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable.
