Santa Barbara Masters wants to help you improve your open water swimming with our Semana Nautica Open Water Training Camp. The objective of this training camp is to give you daily experience with open water races. In addition to having the option to swim in five open water races over the course of five days, we will be offering five 1 hour technique focused swim work outs, open water racing strategy and Q&A sessions before each race, two run, two cycle and two strength work outs. Our professional coaching staff will be providing stroke analysis and personal feedback during all swim sessions.
