22nd-28th  September 2017 

For the fifth year Club La Santa and SwimForTri have put together this Open Water Swim camp for you. The Camp is aimed at Swimmers at intermediate level and Triathletes/Open-water swimmers looking to find clear, concise and helpful coaching towards faster swimming in Open water. This camp will provide the perfect introduction to swimming faster and more confidently in Open water.


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 ’00s 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!!”
