Crossing the Straits of Gibraltar – Swim the World @ Tarifa - Cadiz
Sep 13 – Sep 26 all-day

Swim across the Straits of Gibraltar

 

A very big challenge, if not the biggest, for an open water swimmer is crossing the Straits of Gibraltar. It was a proposal of the same swim addicts who come to our activities which encouraged us to create a Neda el Món group for this exciting challenge. In 2012, 12 Neda el Món swimmers succeeded, 20 in 2013 and this year we pretend that even more swimmers manage to do so.

If you aim to cross the Straits and you would like to join the Neda el Món group, please contact us at info@nedaelmon.com and tell us what motivates you to do so. We will cross the Straits of Gibraltar between September 15th and September 28th.

The Neda el Món pack costs 1,980€. It includes the arrangements, the ACNEG payment, travel costs, accommodation, internal transfers and previous group training supervised by Jonathan Gómez.

In addition, if you cross the Straits with Neda el Món, we will offer you the Neda el Món pack , which allows you to participate free of charge to all the Neda el Món crossings in 2014 (except for Formigues Islands- Medes Islands and SwimHolidays).

Cheers and let's reach Africa!

Sep 21 all-day

Swim The Costa Brava aims at becoming the meeting point for all the open water swimmers at national as well as international level.

We understand that certain trends have changed and so have the concerns of thousands of followers and sportsmen enthusiasts of open water swimming. The first stage (Swim the Costa Brava) within the European Open Water Swimming Championship is born precisely out of the desire to address these changes and to honour this sports disicpline.

swim the costa brava evento

Why L’Escala, the Costa Brava?

It is undeniable that the choice of location is always linked to the quality of both water and its beaches and on this occassion we have also followed these criteria. However, our choice of location pretends to go beyond the charm of L’Escala’s winding coastline and relies on dynamization of cultural and touristic activities paired with the organization of sporting events. With these ideas in mind, we bet for a weekend where every person, either an adult or a child, can find his or her own place.

Why Cala Montgó, the Costa Brava?

Cala Montgó hides in a tiny rocky bay with crystalline turquoise waters surrounded by pines and cliffs. Our search for a beach protected from the Tramontana wind so frequent in the Empordá has lead us to this spot of exceptional beauty.

As the event organizers we support sustainable and family tourism; hence, the importance of the choice of the event’s location. Cala Montgó features family beaches paired with a wide range of accommodation and catering offers tailored to all ages and clients. Comfortable for pedestrian transit, it is, without any doubt, an ideal place.

 The day before the race and after the briefing a live music concert will be organized right on the beach front and this will be followed by a special surprise related to a SPA treatment!

Accommodation and transfer options are available for international swimmers.

Alligator Lighthouse Swim @ Amara Cay Resort

The Swim for Alligator Lighthouse is an 8-mile open water swim in Islamorada, the Florida Keys.

Founded by Florida Keys artist “Lighthouse Larry” Herlth, the event raises awareness of the six aging offshore Florida Keys lighthouses fabricated in the 1800s. Constructed to warn ships away from the Florida Keys reef tract, the lighthouses are no longer maintained, as their function has been replaced by Modern Global Positioning System navigation.





Proceeds from the swim benefit the Friends of the Pool in Islamorada, providing scholarships for high school students and funding swimming and diving programs for the community. The Swim also supports affordable investments towards the preservation of Alligator Light.
