Improving Sea / Open Water Swimming - Berks, UK

Post by Oggi » Tue, 05 Aug 2003 23:48:14

I live nr Reading in Berkshire and would appreciate any advice on the best
way to gain some open water / sea swimming experience. Does anyone have any
experience in this area or how do other people in the area overcome this.
Any good local clubs / swim schools?
I've done a couple of sprint tris and came last both times in the 500m lake
swim. I've just entered for the South Coast Tri in Sept, this involves a
750m sea swim which I'd like to perform in style ,ie finish without
resorting to a survival style *** style.
Any advice appreciated.
