Open water swimming finds place in natural water such as canals, lakes, or mouth of the Maas river. So very challenging! Free and breaststroke are swam over the distances: 250, 500 and 1000 meters. Every summer V.Z.V. Njord is taking part in a championship open water swimming for the Brabant Cup.
As a swimmer you must always be well prepared in cold circumstances. For example, you can cover yourself with Vaseline before swimming, always wear a bathing cap and make sure you have a warm coat or large towel nearby.
