We are very excited to be working with open water Olympic medallist Cassie Patten. After extremely successful SwimQuest technique trips in 2016, for 2017 we have even more Cassie weeks for you to choose from, whether you are new to open water, or an advanced level swimmer looking to shave off those precious few seconds.
In addition to winning bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Cassie is a double world silver medallist and cup winner and European Champion. She made history as the first swimmer in the world to both final in the pool and medal in the open water events at an Olympics, and is one of only nine British swimmers to have won Olympic medals in the last 20 years.
Because of our small group sizes, our Cassie Patten tours ensure that every indivdual receives one-to-one advice and stroke analysis from Cassie and the SwimQuest guides, as well as the opportunity to complete some longer sea swims to put their new found skills into practice.

Unlike our Mathraki and La Santa weeks, which are suitable for all abilities, our Performance week will focus on making you a faster, more efficient swimmer, both in pool and open water. This week is ideal for pool swimmers, club swimmers, triathletes and open water swimmers who are experienced and want to take their speed to the next level.

This tour offers the opportunity to combine Cassie’s expert coaching with some slightly longer swims in the afternoon. Expect a morning of technique sessions, followed by swim of up to 3km in the afternoon to give you the chance to put your newly learnt kills into practice. All sessions are completed in the sea, all all abilities are catered for.
