OPEN WATER SWIM CAMP
W/SWIMFORTRI

International event

ABOUT THE EVENT 

This is the camp to understand how to gain confidence in Open-water. It will help you swim just the racecourse 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 the OW FC technique as it can differ from pool swimming and wetsuit fitting skills. The training will cover race tactics, 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!). The aim is to mix practical workouts with talks, videos and demonstrations. Athletes who have a few years of 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.
