Adam 'Ocean' Walkers ULTIMATE 5 DAY CHANNEL SWIM TRAINING CAMP in Malta has been specifically designed as an intensive swim course for those looking to swim the channel solo, relay or training for longer distance swims in lower temperatures such as a 1 or 2 way Windermere for example. Wetsuit swimmers are also welcome (see details below).  International Coach and Open Water Swimming record holder Adam Walker, along with Assistant National Coach of the Olympic Malta swim team and marathon swimmer Keith Bartolo, have teamed up to offer you the chance to take part in an exclusive swim camp that takes place in Feb/March each year.

  • Learn the Ocean Walker technique: Adams own style of front crawl, the swim stroke that gives you speed and efficiency over long distances but uses less energy than the conventional crawl techniques - a must for endurance swimmers...save those shoulders! The first full day is spent learning this technique in the pool which includes full Ocean Walker video analysis.
  • Sea swims in lower temperatures: Malta has great conditions for training for a channel swim. The sea temp will be between 14-15 degrees and the humidity of the air is another great way to train your acclimatisation. Adam trained in Malta several times during his Oceans 7 challenge. The sea training takes place in several locations based on the weather conditions. You will be swimming on the shore line, or within a bay in large loops. Our safety team will be there to guide you along. We build your swim distance up over the week with 1-1.5 hour dips, then a 3 hour and then a 6 hour (or 2 hour) channel qualifier on the last day.
  • Psychology of open water: Adam talks you through the life changing techniques he learned during his Oceans 7 on how to focus the mind.
  • Nutrition: Ocean Walkers Malta camp nutritional expert Maria Misfud Bonnici (Master of Sport and Exercise Physiology) will give a really interesting and informative talk about what the body needs from food before, during and after a long distance swim.
  • Exercise: To get the most out of your body, land training is just as important. We take you through our favourite stretching and toning exercises.
  • Video analysis: The pool sessions are filmed. See how you progress over the week with your technique, and then following the camp receive your fully analysed footage on email!
  • 4* Accommodation: At the Maritime Antonine Hotel & Spa in Mellieha. You have the option of having your own room or sharing with a partner or friend who is either also taking part in the camp or just wants to come along for a break. All rooms are double or twin beds. The course price includes 5 nights bed and breakfast (check-in Tues, check-out Sun).

The Ocean Walker 5 day technical Swim Camp in Malta is the ideal training platform for open water swimmers who are looking to pursue a solo channel swim or relay and for those who generally wish to improve their performance in open water, including an optional 6 hour channel solo qualifier and 2 hour channel relay qualifier swim at the end of the camp, for which you will receive a signed Ocean Walker certificate of achievement.

THE CAMP BEGINS ON A TUESDAY WITH A 3:30PM MEET IN THE HOTEL RECEPTION
