Welcome to the website! I'm Paul and an STA level 2 open water swimming coach - trained by triple Olympian and double world open water 10km champion Keri-anne Payne. I've had a passion to just be near, in, or on, the water my whole life. Any body of water will do but I'm particularly at home in the sea. I live in the beautiful coastal town of Leigh On Sea with my Wife Beth, and 5 year old Son Harry. I am very fortunate to have the Thames Estuary at the end of my road. Open water swimming for me has always been about relaxation, escapism, freedom - and of course fun. Modern life can be a million miles an hour, but in the sea you will find your moment of serenity. There are endless benefits to open water swimming in terms of mental and physical well being. Having enjoyed these benefits myself I am very passionate to share my experience and enable others to feel the same. With countless thousands of hours of ocean experience I can help you with your first time dip right through to intense competition training. I am additionally proud to be a Royal life saving society water smart & rookie lifeguard instructor as well as mental health awareness for sport and physical activity qualified. I look forward to seeing you in the water.
