Intermediate Open Water Swim Clinic at Cherry Beach

The Tri Trek Toronto Team will be hosting a free open water swim clinic tomorrow at beautiful Cherry Beach. The Intermediate Open Water Swim Clinic will be held at Cherry Beach (end of Cherry Street at Lake Ontario, we will meet by the washrooms) on August 7th at 7pm and will last about 1 hour. This is a free clinic (Thanks to the Trek Bicycle Store) that will be geared more towards swimmers with some previous open water swim experience. You will need to bring a swim suit, goggles, a bright swim cap, and a wetsuit (this is not necessary, as I went out on Saturday without one and water was warm)

The clinic will cover:
-a quick recap of sighting, navigating the course and effective buoy turns
-drafting techniques
– a couple of practice mini races with mass starts were we try to apply the skill learned above (this is great opportunity to practice this as it is tough to do on your own )
-exiting the swim and getting the wetsuit off quickly

Thanks to our sponsor, Cliff Bar, we will also have Cliff bars to give away for all survivors.

Hope to see you there.
