Langland Bay


The first open water swim training camp in Wales, was set up in 1990 by myself (in conjunction with Triathletes Swansea and the University Triathlon club) with Steve Trew (BTA) as guest coach. The open water training sessions were held at Three Cliffs Bay, while lectures and practical swim coaching were held at the Swansea University Sports Centre.

Subsequent training sessions were held at Langland Bay and Pobbles Bay on Gower, until 1994.

Triathletes of all abilities are welcome: from beginners to advanced
