Swim4Purpose kicked off its new Pool Open Water Clinic today that can only be summed up as a “blast”! Limited in participation we covered all aspects of open water swimming that are “best” learned in a pool before venturing into the open water venue. Participants could actually feel the draft generated from learning side/behind drafting techniques that typically very few Triathletes know how to apply effectively. Efficient sighting skills were enhanced with techniques incorporating a sight/breathing combination that greatly improves body positioning. Buoys were placed in the water to simulate turns and sighting at the same time……and of course the mass start simulating the bumping and positioning that is all a part of open water swimming.
This clinic is a must attendance for anyone looking to excel in the open water.
