Open-water can seem daunting for even the most experienced swimmers. So an open-water masterclass with one of the best in the business, World Champion and Olympic silver medalist Keri-Anne Payne, was snapped up by a group of keen triathletes.

Over the course of an hour we watched Keri-Anne demonstrate and explain the techniques that’ll take you from open-water zero to hero. Although it’ll take some practice to imitate the skill shown by Keri-Anne, we thought we’d share some of her best advice before the tri season starts.
