The venue is managed by full-time staff and boasts sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and dragon boat racing amongst it's other sports when open water swimming isn't taking place.

Turner Swim Open Water Swimming Coaching: Swimming in a pool and swimming in open water are very different experiences. Swimming in open water presents an entirely unique set of factors which can affect your swimming, including currents, depth, sighting, other swimmers and course location. Whether you are new to open water swimming, are becoming more comfortable with your face in cold water and sighting, or require advanced tactics and fitness while training for a series of triathlons or Ironman events, then we have a coaching programme for you. Both Saturday morning and early morning weekday coaching sessions will be available. Turner Swim are London's adult swimming coaching specialists, with both group and one-to-one open water swimming coaching sessions available at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre by Canary Wharf.
