Swimming in Open Water Clinic

We offer a new type of clinic, all day long, with lunch included, and where we can learn and experience those additional techniques that complement open water swimming. Moreover, as we do, we can enjoy the wisdom of our team of coaches, who will direct the theoretical and practical techniques of front crawl in open water. And all this at Bernat Picornell Swimming Pools, an olympic and spectacular pool.
