Swimming in Open Water Clinic - 1/2 day

We offer a half-day clinic, 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 coach and crack Jonathan Gomez, who will direct the theoretical and practical techniques of front crawl in open water. And all this at Parc Forum and with a sea training session.
