Robben Island Workshop

Join me for the ROBBEN ISLAND Workshop. This 4-hour workshop is catered for any swimmer looking to complete a Robben Island Crossing or for those aiming to advance their freestyle and open water swimming technique.

Stroke Correction

With freestyle being the main stroke for open water swimming, join me for a day specialising in the most efficient freestyle stroke. Learn the benefits of precise timing, the correct body position and how to drop time from your 100m freestyle in this intense 4-hour Workshop.

For those aiming to complete the Robben Island Crossing, we will be covering:

1. How to train for the Robben Island Crossing
