Bolton Tri Club are hosting open water swim sessions at Elton Sailing Club in Bury which start on and run every Tuesday until The reservoir is now full to the brim and the sailing club has new showers. To save everyone time we ask people to register on-line beforehand - there will be no paper registration forms. It is £5 a swim or £3 for Bolton Tri Club members. But you can get free swims if you provide kayak safety cover for an hour. We have monthly training aquathons with a choice of distances on 20th June, 25th July and 22nd August. For novice open water swimmers who want to improve their skills and confidence there is a coached session with Sarah Hill 6.30 to 7.15pm each week. Also catch us on Facebook search for Open Water Swimming at Elton Sailing Club.
