Swim The Wight is a social enterprise run by three STA Qualified Open Water Swimming Coaches on the Isle of Wight who want to make your swimming around the Isle of Wight as enjoyable as possible.
Why pay to swim in the sea when you can do it for free? A question we have been asked which is fair and we completely understand. Yes, you can swim for free but many people are nervous of doing so, particularly alone. As qualified STA (https://www.sta.co.uk) Open Water Coaches we understand the risks, we are insured and have conducted risk assessments for the locations where we swim. We want to encourage people to be active, to spread the benefits of dipping in the sea / cold water safely and to give like-minded people the opportunity to meet others who share their passion. Friendships are being fostered, information shared and a huge amount of fun is being had by all. For much less than the cost of a daily paper – what’s not too like 😊
