Event overview

map

The Islas Atlánticas Triple Crown (57 km) is organized by Atlantic Extrem Sports and the club Tumetapersonal, known in open water swimming competitions as the organizers of successful Travesía a nado Costa Serena (800m and 4km competitions), that in 2015 gathered more than 400 swimmers in América Beach, Nigrán, Spain.

The Three Crowns (57 km)

The first competition, 13 km, took place in september 2015 from Ons Island to Silgar Beach, in Sanxenxo (Pontevedra), Spain.

In 2016 the second, more hungry, we swam 16 km in september from the mythic the Cíes Islands to Ribeira Beach (Baiona).

After these two competitions, no one will stop us and we will train the whole year to prepare the biggest challenge in our lives: to accomplish the Islas Atlánticas Triple Crown swimming from Sálvora Island and the Vilagarcía de Arousa beaches. A very long swim for 2017 of more than 28 kilometers in which swimmers will swim across O Grove, Cambados, Arousa Island and Vilanova de Arousa, before reach our final destination. This Third Crown will become the toughest European open water swimming competition.

The Islas Atlánticas Triple Crown is more than a sports competition, is a weekend to enjoy yourself and your relatives and friends, swimming, sunbathing on snow white sands, sailing or enjoying our gastronomy and visiting the National Park and the cities around the Rías.

Situated in the province of Pontevedra, the Islas Atlánticas National Park includes the Cíes Islands and the islands of Ons, Cortegada and Sálvora, all of the in the Rías Baixas estuaries.
