BESPOKE SWIMMING DAYS
One to one days experiencing the joy of swimming outdoors!
This is a special day, tailored to you. Maybe you have a longed-for lake, an icy winter dip, a long summer swim or just want to share some of my favourite lakes and coastal spots..
These days are offered one-to-one on a selection of dates that are convenient for you, we can discuss what you would like to experience before you arrive and enjoy a relaxed day of conversations, fresh air and searching for that constantly craved swim euphoria.
Multiple swims are always an option on these days, the weather and/or tides will be the deciding factor on where we go.
"I care little for distance, times and temperatures, swimming for me feeds my creativity and these days are an opportunity to share discussion, the environment and the sheer joy of swimming outside. You are free to take from the day what you wish..
These days make a great gift... I mean who wouldn't want the gift of kicking back and watching the world from the middle of a lake?

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
It is entirely up to you what you want to bring along, these days are about experiences, not endurance. But as a general guide, I would suggest...
Waterproof trousers and jacket
Boots or trainers
Swim hat/woolly hat (may get wet)
Towel/Robie (Dryrobes can be a little bulky to carry in the mountains but you are very welcome to bring one if you have one)
Rucksack to put everything in.
Note. I can provide a changing robe if required, please leave space in your rucksack.
I am an artist, educator and outdoor swimmer. I have lived in the mountains of Snowdonia for 16 years. My project #swimsnowdonia was listed amongst 'The 10 most inspiring adventures' in The Guardian and has been the focus of several short films including a music video for the band Elbow. The film, 'Afterglow' about my passion for my creativity and swimming won Best Woman in Adventure Gold Award at Sheffield Adventure Film Festival. I was included in the first San Miguel Rich List, 'a unique list of men and women who value experiences over any possession'.
I am a qualified teacher, Mountain Leader, hold Emergency First Aid in the Outdoors, RLSS Open Water Lifeguard, RLSS Water Safety Management Level 1-3, and have more than 10 previous years experience safeguarding in swimming pools.
