Jo Mackay is one of Australia’s most prolific high-end travel writers. Pick up any glossy magazine, and you’ll find her beautiful stories. So imagine our surprise when we picked up the latest issue of Qantas Spirit Magazine and found an article about us! Jo joined our Ocean Swim Week almost a year before (yes – that’s how long it takes and sometimes the writers don’t get paid until the article is published), and being an Adelaide girl, she loved the warm water and mild daytime temperatures. Our Swim Weeks with Trevor Hendy are one of our favourite events on the busy Pinetrees calendar, mainly because Trev – a life coach and ‘guru’ – gets us all to slow down. His tips for swimming – breathe, stretch, glide, slipstream, look, relax, release and enjoy – are equally important for life in general, and somehow it all seems easier after a week with Trev. Jo’s article captures the Swim Week experience, and it’s little wonder that they’re booked out months in advance. Thanks Jo!
