CURRENT LAKE WATER TEMP: 20 degrees celcius (6TH JUNE 2021)
2 hour and 6 hour long distance open water swim training sessions now available at the Ocean Walker Crystal Lake in Lincolnshire. Perfect for channel swimmers and long distance open water event swimmers in training.
Limited numbers for this event.
CHANNEL QUALIFYING SWIMS
For channel relay teams and for channel solo swimmers. Our 2 hour and 6 hour swim session gives you the opportunity to get some serious long distance training in prior to your big day. Actual qualifying certificates are completely dependent on the water temperature at the time of the event. If you attend a summer event, then this would be classed as a training swim only as the water temp will be too high.
Adam Walker advises you get plenty of distance training under your belt so you are ready to rock on the day of your swim.
LONG DISTANCE TRAINING
For wetsuit and non-wetsuit open water swimmers who have an event coming up that requires extra time spent in the water, or for those who don't have an event, but want to work on their own personal swim endurance. You will be presented a certificate following your swim detailing the conditions and swimwear you wear on the day. If you are training for a long distance swim event and require certification, please check the requirements and ensure you adhere to these for your actual swim session.
WHAT DO YOU GET?
EXCLUSIVE CERTIFICATE signed by Adam 'Ocean' Walker
OCEAN WALKER SWIM CAP
All swimmers will be presented with an exclusive certificate of completion at the presentation and signed by Adam Walker as a recognised long distance swim, as well as an Ocean Walker Swim Cap. The certificate will only be accepted as a channel qualifier if the water temp is as required for your chosen Channel Swim federation.
Each swimmer has the option to bring their own swim buddy. A swim buddy is someone over the age of 18, who is assiting you train and understands you as a swimmer. They have a very important role during your swim, of feeding you during your swim and ensuring your safety by reporting any concerns immediately to a member of the OWA team on the day. The swim buddy must come with you in the same vehicle (to manage our car park numbers), and we will need their name and details providing upon booking your place.
Each swimmer is allowed 1 swim buddy @ £3 payable in cash on the day.
If you opt not to bring a swim buddy with you and require regular feeds, you have to wear a tow float to carry your bottle so you can feed yourself. (Bottles not to be left on the side).
LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY
Our qualified open water lifeguards at the Ocean Walker Academy will be stationed around the lake and keeping watch over the event. Providing water safety and first aid support. Our team are not providing drinks/feeds to swimmers (see notes above about swim buddies).
