I am Vanessa and I am a qualified Open Water Swim Coach as well as a Swim Teacher, based in Margate, Kent.
I have always enjoyed swimming in the sea. Over the past couple of years, sea swimming as well as cold water dipping into the sea have helped me challenge myself both mentally and physically.
I have swum the River Arun in Sussex (6km) in 2016 and the River Dart in Devon (10km) in 2017.
I am passionate about helping people enjoy the many benefits of sea swimming as well as help those who are nervous of water.
My aim is to make swimming accessible as well as create a safe and inclusive environment for people who access my sessions and foster a sense of community.
My swimming sessions currently are aimed at people over 16 years of age (there is no upper age limit).
I look forward to meeting you soon!
