As the fast pace of modern life pulls us along, it is more important than ever to stop, take in our surroundings and explore something new. Open-water swimming is the perfect example of this as all stresses and anxieties are forgotten and replaced with exhilarating cold water and inimitable endorphins.
Jump in and discover the empowering mental and physical benefits of cold-water swimming in the Isles of Scilly with Olympian and world-leading coach Keri-anne Payne. She contends that the blissful open waters of Tresco make the perfect base for retreats and as such, has now held several swimming experiences on island - with more to come! She goes on to say: “we tend to host our retreats in various locations across the Caribbean, but bringing Triscape to the UK is very exciting for us."
Whatever your open-water swimming experience, a Triscape adventure involves undergoing training and coaching sessions in Tresco’s indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as the unmatched open waters of our archipelago. What’s more, you’ll have personal coaching sessions, performance planning and nutrition guidance: all the while enjoying island life and camaraderie with fellow swimming enthusiasts.
With professional guidance throughout and onward coaching if required, the Triscape experience is an incredibly unique and valuable one. Whatever your goal may be, it’s sure to clear the mind, strengthen the body and enlighten the soul. With more and more people setting new goals and seeking out interest holidays, Triscape’s swimming retreats make for the perfect challenge.“
"Tresco is a really beautiful, calming place, and getting out in those big open waters can bring real tranquillity,” says Keri-anne. “I also want to make swimming accessible and empowering so this break will be as much about a shared experience of coffee and cake after the swim as it will be about diving in and discovering the huge emotional and physical benefits of cold water swimming.”
With a Sea Garden Apartment as your home and the Old Grimsby side of the island as your playground, you can get stuck into all that Tresco has to offer – from the physical attractions like the spa and gardens, to the mental benefits such as a relaxed state of mind and a slower pace of life.
Enjoy a stay that simply exudes the sea! Wake up to the crashing waves on the shore, spend the day exploring the rich ocean waters, and go to sleep dreaming of your underwater discoveries.
This year, the Tresco Swimming Retreat takes place both from 16th – 21st October (for an Introductory course) and 11th – 16th October (for an advanced adventure experience). Including self-catering accommodation in our luxurious apartments, coaching with Keri-anne, and several group dinners, whether you are a fully-fledged open-water enthusiast or an adventurer curious about taking the plunge, it is not an opportunity to miss!
