Do I need a Wetsuit for the Open Water Sessions?
If you are new to Open Water Swimming then a Wetsuit is highly recommended to ensure you can cope with the colder water and to get the best out of your sessions. (You don't want to cut a session short because your cold). Wetsuit Hire is available at an extra cost but its recommended you have your own so you have the best fit and comfort throughout your sessions.
