Partial success in the Strait of Gibraltar
There is still work to be done! Only 3 of the 6 groups who had prepared to cross from Europe to Africa had the opportunity to swim. The bad weather conditions (winds, currents, fog and storms) did not allow to have 6 good days among the 17 days that Neda el Món had a window in the Strait. Nada el Món and ACNEG (the association that manages the crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar) have reached an agreement to have a second window between 16 and 25 October 2022. This will now be the opportunity for the remaining groups!
In the meantime, we want to congratulate François Peyrot (FRA), Paulo Torres (POR), Rafa Fernández (ESP), Joaquín Gambin (ESP), Tomás Morales (ESP), Marie-Pierre Clain (FRA), Pep Llobet (ESP), Sean Michael (USA), Alberto Ambrosi (ITA) and Tsanko Tsankov (BUL), the first Bulgarian to cross from Europe to Africa. Congratulations swim addicts!
