Places are limited so you can be sure of plenty of feedback and individual help. For those attending the January week, ideally you would be able to swim at least 200-300 metres continuously. (8-12 lengths of a standard leisure centre 25 metre pool) and manage up to 2 / 3 Km per day with pool and open water combined however there are options to shorten sea swims and do as much or as little as you can manage. We start with the basics and progress throughout the week. There's no pressure to complete a swim but we always try to make sure swimmers achieve their goal. On the March week we would potentially look for 400-500 metres continuously and up the daily distance to around 3-4 Km although again we can be flexible and there would be options to do less or more!.
This winter, we are again heading to Playitas Resort, Fuerteventura for some great weeks of swimming in both the pool and open water.
