Discover a love for open water swimming…or just become more comfortable with swimming outdoors in our beautiful ponds, lakes and oceans.  Are you planning a triathlon this spring?  Looking to swim Peaks to Portland?  Maybe you swam as a child and have wondered about getting your fitness back?

Kirsten Read will be coaching the swim group. She is a very experienced open water swimmer and a certified Level I & II masters coach.

This Open Water Clinic is designed to help beginner to advanced swimmers become more comfortable in the open water. You will be introduced to practical navigation skills, relaxation strategies, and what to expect (and not to expect) on Race Day.  The goal is to promote relaxation (and speed) by taking away the unknowns and setting expectations.  The more we practice, the more we know what to expect.

Each clinic will begin with 15 – 20 minutes of discussion, demonstration, and practice in shallow water on the week’s focus topic.  Then we will buddy-up and swim to a point and back, the distance depending on your speed, ability and desire.  Remember: it’s supposed to be fun!


Kirsten Head ShotKirsten began swimming at the age of 8 and went on to win MA state titles and compete at Brown University.   After a hiatus of 20 years she has now embraced masters swimming, and has especially fallen in love with open water swimming.  She has competed in many open water races all over New England and further from home, winning Peaks to Portland, Boston Sharkfest, and the Bermuda Round the Sound 10K, to name a few.  In addition, this return to swimming has provided personal growth, health, friendship, and camaraderie surpassing all expectations.Kirsten Logo
