New for 2019, our Channel Relay Swim Training Camp is designed to prepare those swimmers who are either set to do an English Channel relay swim (or equivalent) or those who are interested in doing one in the future, meeting like minded swimmers and experiencing a swim for this kind of duration.
Being part of an open water swimming relay team has its unique challenges and this camp aims in covering these and preparing the swimmers for them. It is the perfect way to prepare yourself, both physically and mentally, for any long distance swim challenge that you’re planning to undertake.
Under the expert eye of our experienced swim coaches, you will have all the support that you need to complete six days of open water training. Incorporating video analysis to improve your technique and performance, and seminars on topics such as “Feeding and Hydration” and “Mental Preparation,” this camp will ensure that you are ready to take on your open water challenge with a solid level of preparation behind you.
Whether you’re planning on a channel relay swim from England to France, or heading off to take part in another relay swim in a different corner of the world, we understand what you’re going through. We’ve been there before and we know what it takes to prepare yourself for such a challenge.
With expected water temperatures of 18-20°C (guide only), this trip includes an optional two-hour swim for guests who want to push themselves to doing long duration swims. Please note that the 2 hour swim is not intended as a Channel qualification swim due to expected water temperature, but will prepare you to complete this duration of swim back in cooler waters.
Our accommodation is the Perast Palace in the town of Perast located on Kotor Bay. Formally an old palace, it has recently been converted into a home-from-home style accommodation. It’s an ideal facility for these camps and is within 100 metres of the sea which helps to optimise the mix of training and relaxation time throughout your trip.
