Live life in the wet lane
Been sitting on the sidelines too long? It's time to leap in the deep end and be active.
Brighton Surf Life Saving Club BE ACTIVE SWIM PROGRAM
Come to the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club Be Active Swim Program. The Surf Lifesavers will let you wade in at the shallow end. You won't be standing in the shallows and shivering for too long. The Lifesavers at Brighton Surf Life Saving club will have you swimming through the waves and learning techniques for swimming in open water events, such as the Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic.
Brighton Surf Life Saving Club welcomes all participants from 10 to 70, who know how to swim. They are dedicated and not deterred by extra water from above. I know, I have swum with them in the rain.
The sessions run every Saturday in January. You can register in the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club rooms upstairs at 2.15pm. These training sessions are free. Be on the beach at 2.45pm with sunscreen and bathers on. You will also need goggles and a drink bottle and hat for the beach warm-ups. The session runs for an hour.
Brighton Surf Life Saving Club offers the opportunity for extra swimming practice by joining their swim event at 4pm. You can register your interest for this at the club.
The 2014 Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic will be held Sunday 2nd February. You can learn more about the Brighton Jetty Classic 400m or 1500m events on their website. The Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures are a fantastic addition to the swimming events. These are available for viewing along the esplanade and in the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club and Bindarra Reserve from Wednesday 22nd January to Sunday 2nd February 2014.
