During Summer members swim in the evenings at West Lakes for longer, endurance swims, and to get more familar with the open water (no sharks!).

A wetsuit is advised especially at the start and end of season. You must swim with a bright colour cap, and we do advise no one swims alone. Remember that there are other lake users, such as rowers and kayakers, who may not be looking for swimmers.
