Will You Be Joining Us In Sunny Mallorca For The BEST FEST Of Open Water Swimming?

A multitude of races over a variety of distances to choose from

Dear swimmers,

After the last 3 years attending Europe's BEST Fest of open water swimming in Mallorca, many of you have been enquiring about joining us on this magical Mediterranean island to participate in the 2019 edition of the best open water swimming experience available anywhere on the planet!

Picture this: Waking up every morning to join the Swim Smooth team of coaches and other swimmers for a super invigorating 800m swim in the Med, before a relaxed buffet-style breakfast and a casual stroll through the town to the start of the day's race - anywhere from 1.5 to 10km - and then enjoying a late lunch, a sangria or two and then accessing one of the free swimming clinics and seminars that we offer to support the festival.

That's all before a sunset dinner at some of the best casual dining in Europe. Sound good? Multiply by seven and you've got a fabulous week of swimming where you might race anything up to 30+km and with the additional swim sessions and easy morning limber-ups, easily clocking up 40km... if you want to! Take it as seriously or as casually as you wish. Bring or hire a bike and take a 90 minute road trip to access some of the best mountainous riding anywhere on the planet, or bring your trainers for some brilliant coastal trail running around Colonia Sant Jordi.

Think of it like: The Tour de France of open water swimming, accumulating points from each race to a series final in your age group. Meet new swimming friends from literally all over the world and enjoy the company of these like-minded swimmers in an area of extreme natural beauty... and no stingers or sharks either!

Where is it: Colonia Sant Jordi is on the southern tip of Mallorca, approximately 50 minutes drive from Palma. Various hotel accommodations can be booked via Vanessa at vanessa@bestswimcentre.eu (please quote "Swim Smooth" for the best deals) - we prefer to stay in the THB Sur - great for the budget conscious and right on the Med! An other good option is the Blue Waters, which is also a short walk from the town's 50m pool.

Event website: Entry for the various races can be made at www.bestopenwater.com/prices-offers/ - all 7 events plus a free relay entry can be purchased for 250 Euros but there is the option to also pick and choose as you wish!

Race as Swim Smooth: I reckon we've got a good chance of being the best attended "club" or even "country" through the "People's Republic of Swim Smooth" - as we're making a big push for other Swim Smooth followers from across the planet to come and join us for one almighty meet-up! So please add "Swim Smooth" as your club name when registering!

Getting there: Fly into Palma and take a taxi or bus down to Sant Jordi. I'd suggest arriving on the Friday 24th May and departing Sunday 2nd June or Monday 3rd June.

Drop us an email to swimsmooth@me.com after you've entered and we'll keep you posted on extra curricular Swim Smooth activities for that week!
