Club members wishing to gain competition experience will be delighted to learn following on from the great success of ‘BEST FEST 2013’ and ‘BEST FEST 2014’, the dates for next year’s renewal; ‘BEST FEST 2015’ have been announced!

The World’s premier week long open water swimming Festival will take place in Colonia St Jordi, Mallorca between Saturday 23 May and Saturday 30 May 2015.
