Welcome to the 2017 Open Water Swimming Season

Whether you have been swimming with us for years or your goal of 2017 is your first triathlon, it’s now time to think about leaving the pool and your winter training behind and to get out into the lake.

  • The daylight hours are longer
  • Air temperature is rising
  • Water temperature is on the up, presently 10 Celsius
  • On April 1st we re-start our 6 weekly sessions for open water swimming sessions

At Bray Lake Open Water Swimming Centre we pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and welcome triathletes and open water swimmers of all abilities.

The popularity in triathlon and open water swimming is ever increasing and our Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead based Open Water Swimming Centre is looking forward to welcoming you to Bray Lake for the coming season.
