Open water swimming
courses, lessons and workshops
From mid-May to mid-October we organize 6-week courses and day or weekend workshops in open water. Swimming in open water has the advantage that you swim in natural water without chemicals. If your goal is to swim outside a lot yourself, it is also an advantage to receive lessons in the same conditions as where you swim afterwards.
Open water swimming location at hotel Fletcher, Spaarnwoude
Currently the location where we give open water courses Spaarnwoude (near Haarlem), behind the Fletcher hotel. The water quality is good there, you can stand there and there is a comfortable jetty to get in and out of the water. There are also changing rooms, toilets and showers available, and a restaurant to eat something before or after your lesson. We have wetsuits in all sizes to borrow that you can use during the course, so you don't have to buy anything and can first see if open water is something for you. In the spring and autumn, swimming in a wetsuit is more pleasant. In the summer this is not necessary for most people.
