Night swim experience
Swim along island-dotted stretches of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast as part of our unique Channel Relay Training camp. Enjoy six action-packed days especially designed to prepare swimmers who are set to do an English Channel relay swim (or equivalent), or for those who are interested in doing one in the future. As part of this camp, you’ll meet like-minded swimmers, train under the tutorage of world class SwimTrek coaches and experience open water swims for the qualifying durations you require.
Our guides and safety escorts will support you at every turn, ensuring each swimmer gains the given number of hours needed, using circuit style routes in the crystalline local waters. We will also use in-depth filming, video analysis and seminars to cover the following units*:
|Unit 1||Unit 7|
|Breathing||Event Planning and Preparation|
|Unit 2||Unit 8|
|Body Position and Alignment||Nutrition|
|Unit 3||Unit 9|
|Catch and Propulsion||Mental Strength|
|Unit 4||Unit 10|
*We aim to cover as much applicable content as possible for each swimmer. You will be provided with additional resources and material to support the camp, but delivery may vary based on conditions and itinerary.
With expected water temperatures of 16-20°C (guide only), this trip includes a practice qualifier swim (up to 2 hours) for guests who want to push themselves to doing long duration swims. This swim is not intended as a Channel qualification swim due to expected water temperature, but it will prepare you to complete this duration of swim back in cooler waters.
Our accommodation on the island of Prvić Luka, Croatia, overlooks the marina - so it is close to swim locations, helping to optimise the mix of training and relaxation time throughout your trip.
Who is this camp for?
This trip is designed for the swimmer, or group of swimmers who are training for a team relay event where swim legs are between 1-2 hours in duration.
Swimmers should also have a good understanding of open water swimming, but swimming distances will vary for each swimmer as each swim is a given duration.
