Alicante 2018 Swim Camp
The swim camp will be based in the Alicante area with an exciting range of coves and coastlines to explore over the course of a week.
This trip is a great opportunity to swim with like minded individuals while exploring new waters and coastlines. There will be a new swim location each day with swim support provided. This trip is suited for swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 5km in one swim and who have a good understanding of open water swimming.
