4th Swim Around Sa Dragonera- Swim the World @ Sa Dragonera. Andratx (Mallorca)
May 1 – May 2 all-day

Swim around Sa Dragonera

Swimming around an island: a spectacular challenge! From the Mallorca coast, full of light and life, to the dark side of the Cap de Llebeig where the Mediterranean Sea reveals its strength. It’s a long, dark crossing, fringing dizzying cliffs and impressive depths. The breathing of the kayakists and the people following in the boats shows us the light. After surrounding The Cap de Tramontana the sea is shallow again and we‘ll get closer to the Port de Sa Dragonera, where we will have started this 9,500m crossing. We also organise every year a shorter version of 3.200m.

Routes

Long route 9.500 m

Short Route 3.200 m

Alternative A in bad weather conditions - 5.000 m

Alternative B in bad weather conditions - 5.100 m

Accomodation and transfers

All swimmers and friends or relatives who want to come to the 4th Sa Dragonera crossing will be offered two kinds of packs. Both are adjustable to everybody’s travel plan and have to be booked sending an e-mail to  info@nedaelmon.com

  • Pack Transfers + 1 night: includes all the transfers and one night at the Apartaments Villa Real** sharing a room (the night from Saturday to Sunday) .

Services

  • Swimmers transfers. Swimmers will be transferred to Sa Dragonera by motorboat, parting from the Sant Elm beach from 7.30 am onwards.
  • Relatives and friends. The organisation will provide sailboats to all friends and relatives  who would like to follow the crossing. The boats too will sail around the beautiful island. They will also part from the Sant Elm beach and start following  the swimmers as soon as all of them have parted from Sa Dragonera. They will go back to the Sa Dragonera port before the first swimmer gets there, so everybody will be able to see the arrival of all of them.
  • Insurances. All swimmers and all volunteers will have a liability insurance and an insurance against accidents.
  • Briefing. There will be an informative briefing for the swimmers the day before the crossing, Saturday May 31st, at 7pm, at the Andratx Yacht Club.
  • Local information. At the briefing the organisation will also provide information about several activities (cultural visits, excursions to the Sa Dragonera Natural Park and other areas in the neighbourhood) to all the people who would like to spend the weekend there.
  • Wetsuit rental. You can rent a wetsuit at Neda el Món.
  • Cloakroom service. There will be a cloakroom service at the start and arrival area.
  • Food and drink supplies. The organisation will supply, at specific places, food and drinks during and after the event.
  • Security / Medical Service. In first place the kayaks will provide security. In case anybody needs to be evacuated, pneumatic boats are available. There will be a medical service and an ambulance at the Sant Elm beach.
  • Closure Lunch. The final event of the weekend will be a lunch prepared by our friend, the Majorcan chef Germán Navas. Last year he prepared us a delicious “fideuà”  and this year he will surprise us with a “pica-pica” and a paella. Lunch will be at the Andratx Yacht Club at 3pm.

Fiji Pearls swim @ Daku Resort
May 1 @ 7:00 am – May 3 @ 7:00 am

We are proud to launch the Fiji Pearls swim - the first major open water ocean swim event in Fiji’s north. The event is sponsored by J. Hunter Pearls, Fiji’s major producer of premium quality Fiji pearls, based in Savusavu, who are giving the winners' prizes of beautiful Fiji pearls. Accommodation is with the organizers at Daku Resort.

Fiji’s clear warm waters offer a beautiful environment in which to swim. We are offering two long-distance swims with an easy short swim on the day between. We hope you’ll participate in all three, but you are free to choose just one if you prefer.

Schedule:

Wednesday May 29 :                         10 km  (6.2 miles)                   8.30am 

From Daku Resort beach to Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort jetty and back  (high tide 10.30 so swimmers will swim with rising tide on first leg and falling tide on return)

 Thursday May 30:                  2 km (1.24 miles)                    9.30 am

From J Hunter Pearls farm platform to Daku Resort (high tide 11.30 so swimmers will swim with rising tide)

 Friday  May 31 :                      5 km (3.1 miles)                      10.30. am

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort jetty to Daku Resort beach (high tide 12.30  so swimmer will swim with rising tide)  

 CONTACT US AT DAKU RESORT FOR BOOKING ENQUIRIES

The swim between Daku Resort and Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort runs in a straight line along the coast. It follows the last sweep of Savusavu Bay which is protected from the south easterly trade winds that can sometimes make the sea choppy on the other side of the peninsula. The water is warm and clear. There are coral heads from time to time although they are closer in to the shore line than the swim route. We pass two groups of oyster pearl lines belonging to the J Hunter Pearl farm on the way.

The 5k swim will run from the beach at Daku Resort to the jetty at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort. The 10k swim runs the same course, and then turns back to return to Daku Resort.

The 2k swim on the day between  will start at the Fiji Pearls farming platform which is anchored between the two resorts, and once again runs back up along the coastline to Daku Resort.

We are also offering  a two day swim safari on the weekend after the swims.
