New for 2019, we are pleased to announce Montenegro as an additional venue for our ever popular Long Distance Training camps. With more than 250 successful English Channel solo swimmers having completed our long distance training in the past, 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 intensive open water training. Incorporating video analysis to improve your technique and performance, and a packed schedule of seminars on critical 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 considering swimming the Channel or taking part in another long distance 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 camp builds to an optional six-hour swim for guests who want to push themselves to doing long duration swims. Please note that the 6 hour swim is not intended as a Channel qualification swim due to expected water temperature. For a qualifier swim you should join one of our Channel and Long Distance Training Camps in Mallorca.
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 100m of the water which helps to optimise the mix of training and relaxation time throughout your coaching camp.
