We went on holiday to Croatia with a company called SwimTrek.
As the name implies, it's like a trekking company, except the days are filled with swimming rather than walking.
In the past at swim camps, our coach Dan Bullock has emphasised the improvement to be made by regularly swimming, saying "If you can swim for seven days in a row, you will improve".
What better way to do this than on a swimming holiday? Warm water; a main support boat with an experienced skipper; plus two inflatables manned by excellent swim guides who could keep the swimmers together in their different speed groups, provide drinks when needed (the Aegean is very salty), and look after safety.
