Per the schedule of open water swims for the 9.30am squad this February / March due to closures of the pool for carnivals (see full schedule here: http://swimsmoothperth.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/our-next-batch-of-international-coaches.html), this Friday sees our first open water swim up at the new shark net at Sorrento Beach.
The session will start at 10am and run until 11/11.15am depending on the weather (which is looking great!). By all means please bring a wetsuit if you wish and be prepared for lots of fun and a small amount of (optional) beach running.
Sorrento Beach is a 26 minute drive north of Claremont Pool. We are trialling this first session there given the brilliant shark net facility, offering up to a 1200m loop in which to swim.
A couple of you have mentioned that you have a kayak or SUP you could bring along - as there will be a whopping 13 coaches there with me - it'd be great if you wouldn't mind bringing something down as we can use these to assist you and create man-made markers in the water.
Here's some maps so you don't get lost.
Park in the car park just north of the Sorrento SLSC if there is space:
Meet us by the small stone groyne indicated by the purple pinpoint in the image below. The red triangle is 1200m and follows the inside perimeter of the shark net - it's a great facility!
See you there!
