Open Water

Join Triton for open water swimming. We swim 3-4 days per week at Barrington beach, as well as occasional swims in Newport and Jamestown. Open water sessions are generally 45 – 60 minutes. All sessions are ‘swim at your own risk’! Swim participants will be paired up as a safety precaution.

Wetsuits are recommended for early spring and late fall.

If you enjoy open water swimming, I encourage you to try some of the many great, local open water events (Click the event name for more info/register):
