Open Water Swimming guidance from Dee Newell

Feral Friend and open water swimmer Dee Newell has created a brilliant series of videos with Water Safety Ireland about open water swimming. Dee certainly knows her stuff, regularly swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea. 

These are a fantastic resource for those of you easing yourself back into the water. Great to see our Turtleback as a key part of her kit too... 


Open water swimmer Dee Newell, takes you through her pre-swim routine so that you know how to prepare for a safe and enjoyable dip.

Your Swim

Dee discusses how to manage your swim so that you get the best experience while always remaining safe.

Getting Out

Once you finish your swim and exit onto dry land, it is important to follow some key safety steps. Dee shares her after-swim practices to help you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

These films were produced by Water Safety Ireland, a statutory, voluntary body and registered charity established to promote water safety and reduce drownings in Ireland.
