Hoping to improve your open-water swimming in time for this year’s race season? Well there’s no better way to achieve this than by spending a week in sunny Mallorca at the annual BEST Fest (bestopenwater.com), organised by the BEST Swim Centre, from 26 May to 2 June.
Each day sees the festival host an open-water race in one of the bays around Colonia St Jordi, with distances ranging from 500m up to 10km. There are even half and full-iron distance swims too, in the 220 Triathlon Corberana Challenge.
This year, one lucky reader will win entry into as many races as they choose, plus a week’s half-board accommodation for two at the Centre’s Bluewater Hotel, only a few minutes walk from both the beach and the swim centre – where you’ll also find a 50m training pool. Finally, BEST Fest sponsors HUUB have included a pair of Altair goggles (£49.99), a swim hat (£6.99) and a kickboard (£19.99).
