WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A TECHNIQUE WEEK?
Our technique weeks are suitable for all ability levels. These tours really are about working on stroke mechanics, breaking things down, and learning about the most efficient and effective way to swim, rather than cranking out huge distances. We are hugely proud of our fantastic guest coaches, Olympic medallist Cassandra Patten, and award-winning Ray Gibbs, from Swim Canary Wharf.
Our technique tours are ideal for anyone looking to:
– improve the technical competency of their stroke
– improve the speed and efficiency of their front-crawl
– become comfortable swimming in open water
– find out if open water swimming is for them.
We promise that you will leave with a much better knowledge of how to swim efficiently and effectively in open water, and a good idea of how to progress your swimming moving forward. If you’d like to speak to any of our previous guests about these trips, let us know – we’d be happy to put you in touch.
WHICH TECHNIQUE WEEK SHOULD I CHOOSE?
price: from £815 | may, sept
This tour is ideal for anyone who be slightly nervous of open water, who would like to make an effective transition from pool to sea swimming, or simply someone who is keen to spend a week looking closely at their front crawl open water technique. This tour is based on Formentera Island, just off Ibiza. With crystal clear water and bright white, shallow beaches, it is the perfect place to gradually ease your way from pool to sea. At the end of the week, we will aim to complete an open water swim from Pujols bay, around the headland and into Escullet de Pujols. You’ll be blown away by the improvement you can make in just one week.
