Meet up at Brighton Beach with other open water enthusiasts at 10 am every Saturday & Sunday from Memorial Day until Labor Day. If you’re new, ask for an quick orientation–we’re happy to show you the ropes.

Beginner Swim Clinics led by experienced CORE CIBBOWS swimmers.
Requirements: Must be able to float, tread water, and swim at least 200 yards in a pool without stopping.  No previous open water swim experience necessary. Dates to be announced.

Intermediate Swim Clinics led by experienced CORE CIBBOWS swimmers.
Requirements: Should be able to swim 800 yards in a pool without stopping, and be ready to swim past the jetty in open ocean.  The objective of these clinics is to provide you with the tools to make you safer and more comfortable in the ocean, and give you the skills you need to feel prepared for your next open water swim. Dates to be announced.

Jetty Drills with Patricia Sener. Tired of just swimming to the pier and back?  We’ll do a different drill set in each jetty designed to enhance your speed, form and streamline. Plus it’s fun! Must be able to swim to the pier and back. Dates to be announced.

Whether you’re a newbie or a long-time CIBBOWser, show your support and become an official member. You’re welcome to come down and swim with us before you commit to being a member. Swim clinics are for CIBBOWS members only.

PLEASE NOTE!! We are not a learn-to-swim program. We are happy to refer you to a local pool where you can learn skills you need to tackle open water, and heartily encourage you to learn how to swim so we can share the love, but you need to have some basic swimming skills before you can attend our clinics or expect to come out and swim with us.

NEW Members in 2018 will receive one of these awesome swim buoys. Highly visible buoys assure that lifeguards and water craft can see you – and you can also store some stuff in them if you don’t want to leave it on the beach. 2017 members that did not collect their buoys last summer are still eligible to receive one.
