It is advisable to remove jewellery and watches. If you wear glasses, it is useful to wear a retainer strap to avoid accidental loss. We have light weight wind proof tops available which are useful to help keep you warm, when you get wet. If you have one, it may be worth wearing a wetsuit. Please bring a change of clothes with you. There are changing rooms and showers at the club house.|
