CASSIE PATTEN’S FRONT CRAWL WORKSHOPS AT BLENHEIM PALACE
We are hugely excited to be teaming up with Cassie Patten and Blenheim Palace to bring you these unique SwimQuest skills workshops. What better way to spend a day than to brush up on open water skills in one of Britain’s most spectacular venues, taught by one of Britain’s top athletes?
Choose from the morning or afternoon session, allowing you time to explore the stunning gardens and grounds too.
Your place (£79pp) will include:
- Either the morning (10am – 1pm) or the afternoon (2pm – 5pm) swimming workshop
- Light refreshments (you are also welcome to purchase lunch in one of Blenheim’s cafes / restaurants before or after your session)
- A Blenheim Park & Gardens ticket
This is an invaluable opportunity to brush up your front crawl technique with advice from Olympic Open Water Medallist Cassie Patten. Cassie is hugely skilled at breaking down the front crawl stroke into 4 easy-to-digest parts. The first half of the session will be a land-based seminar, in which Cassie explains her approach to the stroke, how to break it down for yourself and build it back up again.
In the second half of this session, you will be given the opportunity to put your new movements and knowledge into practice with exclusive access to Blenheim’s beuatiful lake as we split into groups and try out Cassie’s tips.
This session is suitable for all ability levels, however we advise you should have some open water experience and be able to swim 100m comfortably without stopping (in any stroke). The group will be divided into ability groups.
