Beginners Open Water Swim (BOWS)

Jul 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Thursday, repeating until Oct 10, 2019

Ready to make the transition from the pool to the fabulous joys of open water? Feeling a little nervous? You’re not the only one! Come join us for evenings of learning how to swim WITH the water, not just in the water!

All you need is the ability to swim about 100m without stopping, goggles, and a brightly coloured swim cap (don’t let that stop you…we have extras!).

Wet suits are definitely recommended, but not required.

We meet near the restrooms at the western edge of the cove (closest to the roller coaster…driving west on W Mission Bay Dr, turn left on Mariner’s Way (Bahia Hotel is on the right), and then turn right into the parking lot. If you’re near a children’s playground, head about 0.2mi toward the roller coaster).

Folks typically begin to arrive around 5:30pm and we’re “toes in the water” at 6:00pm.

Please join us, too, for rehydration and calorie replenishment at Off Shore Tavern afterwards!

**please note: from May through September, we will join the rest of TCSD at the monthly aquathlons…usually at La Jolla Shores. Please keep an eye on the race calendar, and plan on join us for a gentle ocean swim and/or race “party wave”!**
