About Wet Weekends
Ultimately, each wet weekend is different. On the Friday night, once everybody had arrived - we will sit down and figure out what YOU want to do. Obviously, it's a democratic process, and we cannot please everybody all of the time, but we aim to show you a good variety of the exceptional swims that we have to offer in North Wales.
So depending on the groups wishes;
- we could be going for long distance swims along beaches or around headlands,
- we could be doing adventrous dips and exploring some of the nooks and crannies of the craggy Welsh coastline (probably not all 750 miles of it though)
- we could be enjoying the sunshine (yes it does happen in Wales) on sandy beach and playing in the surf
- we could be cruising down a river, going with the flow and seeing the world from a different angle, at a different pace
- we could be scaling mountains to dip into hidden lakes, or bathe under mountain waterfalls
- or far more likely, we will be doing a combination of all of them.
The swims will be tailored to YOUR capabilities, and there is absolutely no pressure for people to be swimming laps of Anglesey. Each swim will be as long or as short as YOU want it to be. We always make sure that we have options at many of the venues we go to.
It is a cliche these days, but safety is our number one priority. Dan has spent over a decade of his life working in the area of water safety, and there is simply no way that he will compromise on that. If the Gone Swimming team does not feel that it is safe to take you to a swim, then we will take you somewhere else.
This is the huge advantage of having local guides, with local knowledge, and no fixed itinerary or journey to swim. If the wind is howling from one direction, we will be sure to know of some sheltered spots where we can still have a nice swim. Whatever the weather, we will have a few spots up our sleeve, and let's face it - you can only get soaked to the skin, no deeper. You're coming on a wet weekend in Wales - what do you expect?
