Speedo Open Water Swim Camp with SwimForTri

Por favor, tenga en cuenta que el evento se impartirá en inglés.

Please note that the event is fully booked. If you wish to join a waiting list, please send an email to
27th January - 2nd February 2017

This Camp, now in its sixth year, is aimed at intermediate level swimmers and Triathletes/ Open water swimmers looking to find clear, concise and helpful coaching towards faster swimming in Open water. This camp will enable participants to swim faster and more confidently.



This is the camp to understand how to gain confidence in Open-water. It will help you swim just the race course distance as many unnecessarily add 100's of metres, teach you how often you should sight and help with relaxed breathing. We can help with OW FC technique as it can differ from pool swimming and wetsuit fitting skills. Race tactics will be covered and we can help both Triathletes and those just racing Openwater.

The sessions are perfect for competitors from Openwater newcomers to intermediate levels (but several Pros have also attended in the past!) and the aim is to mix practical workouts with talks, video and demonstrations. Athletes who have a few years endurance training in Swimming or Triathlon will find it manageable and entertaining. Please remember your swim equipment such as a pool buoy, kickboard, flippers and a wetsuit.

Comment from a former guest:

"Wow. You work incredibly hard. Thanks for your talent, swim brilliance, enthusiasm and sense of fun. Book chapters, drill set reminders and the prospect of homework (eek!). And you made time to edit filming of us all - which I'm sure will continue to be super instructive.

Thank you to all concerned.  To say that the week is value for money is an understatement.

In summary, the swim camp was (very) challenging, instructive and a complete joy!

Thank you!!"
