4tg NORTH EVIAN GULF CROSSING
CAPTAIN ANDREAS TSESMELIS
SWIMMING MARATHON 14,470m
JULY 26 2014
The Association of Amateur Fishermen in Limni Evias, ‘Poseidon’, announce the Swimming Marathon: the 4th North Evian Gulf Crossing, “SKYLLIAS 2014″ in Limni, on Saturday 26 of July 2014, honouring the first known long-distance swimmer in Ancient Greece, whose swimming performance and underwater action played an important role in the victorious battle of Artemision, in Northern Evia.
It is well known that long-distance races have always been a timeless challenge and a legacy of Greek culture for the generations of people in the past, present and future. In these hard times, our Club is seeking to revive and restore the sporting and Olympic spirit, by establishing a new field of noble competition and a test of physical and mental strength, away from the expediencies of professional athleticism. At the same time, this event attempts to raise public awareness of the protection of the Evian Gulf from human intervention and takes initiative to declare the “Kantili Shores” as a region of great environmental and ecological importance that requires protection.
Furthermore, the Board of ‘Poseidon’, intents to contribute to the enhancement and promotion of maritime personalities of our region, who have made rescue operations, nautical contributions and have generally shown humanitarian altruism in the sea, by deciding to additionally name this summer’s Swimming Marathon as:
The participants, who must be 18 ore over, are invited to swim a distance of about 14,470m. Starting from port Lechouni (near village Osmaes Theologou) and finishing at the shore of Limni’s beach without using fins or other navigational aids. For the swimmers’ safety, speedboats and motoring boats will accompany them and will provide wireless communication and other supporting tools.
Swimmers will be considered as having successfully completed the race, if they reach Limni’s pier, or the adjacent beach in front of the Court House, within 3 hours of the first swimmer completing the race.
