Founded by triple Olympians Keri-anne Payne and David Carry, Triscape undertake swimming retreats in locations across the globe, aiming to improve participants’ confidence in the water and provide inspiration and drive for future swimming challenges.
Triscape’s ‘Straight Line Swimming’ method is central to the coaching provided, focusing on finding the most efficient way to move between two points in the water. Straight Line Swimming addresses breathing, body position, and propulsion through the water in order to find a rhythmic, streamlined stroke.
Keri-anne will be leading the Tresco-based retreat. She is a South African-born British swimmer, a two-time 10-kilometre open water world champion, and an Olympic silver medallist. She recently featured on Channel 4's Sink or Swim, coaching a group of celebrities towards the gruelling challenge of swimming the English Channel in aid of Stand up to Cancer.
