While most lessons and clinics are held during daylight hours, evening sessions are available with the use of lighting.
Here we find Fred in the pool engaging with clinic attendees on proper technique and execution, in this case discussing the streamlined body position and slight kicking motion.
Take the anti wave racing lanes out and we can effectively simulate open water conditions. Add a bunch of willing participants to engage in some wave smashing and you’re in the middle of the Atlantic.
After the 2012 Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, we find Doug Saar, Fred Hviid and Mike Peckham in a photo-op. This was Doug’s 20th crossing of the Bay!
Here we find the lecture portion of the clinic in session. Doug provides the lecture while Fred engages in live demonstrations of the proper drill and swimming techniques.
Deck offers great space, allowing for golf instruction adjacent to the pool, with great views to the woods.
The pool is located in a wooded area, surrounded by 2.5 acres of natural wonder, offering complete serenity and tranquility, perfect for private instruction and custom clinics.
2-3 weeks prior to the Bay Swim, Doug and Fred enjoy 3-4 swims at Lake Linganore, offering a taste of what’s to come. Lacking in choppiness, the swim makes up with a distance comparable to that of the Bay Swim if one swims from the beach to the canal and back again.
Fred exits the water after completing the 4.4 mile crossing of the 2011 Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, winning by a margin of 6 minutes. This was Fred’s first Bay Swim and first ever open water swim.
Doug exits the water after completing the St Croix 5 mile Coral Reef Swim.
With comfortable, shaded seating for attendees, they can focus on the vital details Doug and Fred demonstrate and share with them during the hour long lecture portion of the clinic.
Doug’s personal instruction, attention to detail and focus on technique is key to your improvement.
This was the start of the 2003 Chesapeake Bay Swim, with this pic making the front page of the Washington Post. That’s Doug there in the middle, arms extended out in front of him (right below, and slightly to the left of that guy with the manly belly). 😉
