22nd September 2023
On Sunday 22 January, I will be running an Open Water Clinic at 08h00, from Kite Beach. This session is free of charge and will be videoed.
On the following weekend we will be swimming around the Burj Al Arab so this will be excellent preparation!
For as little as AED 300 you can rent a Blue Seventy Fusion wetsuit in advance from Sported if you do not own one (recommended) – contact the Showroom at +971 56 409 0994 –
> Goggles, swimhat
> Trisuit or swimsuit
> Wetsuit (we will be 3 hours so a wetsuit is recommended)
> Dry towels, dry and warm clothes for afterwards

The following points will be covered: technique, safety, understanding the ocean and your swim route, feeding, starts and finishes, drafting, sighting (swimming straight), turning buoys, positioning in a dynamic environment, dealing with physical contact, water safety, and some play.
