Boris Pallarès: You'll never swim alone!
The swim of the Medes Islands is always very special for Neda el Món. It is a beautiful event, in a privileged location where the goal is to help raise funds and amplify the work of La Marató de TV3.
This year we will live the event very intensely because the subject touches directly to the heart of Neda el Món. That is why this year we want to dedicate the swim to our coach, Boris Pallarès, who for several weeks is fighting against the disease.
We have no doubt that we will see him in Fukuoka in 2021!

Success in Sa Dragonera
On June 16th, a group of swimmers and swimmers flocked to the island of Sa Dragonera. For two years now Neda el Mundo opts for a smaller format of passage that aims to claim the enjoyment of the sea, rather than the competitive aspect of open water crossings.
This year, the participants of the swim were able to swim in a practically flat sea and with unbeatable wind conditions. The jellyfish took their heads mainly to the final part of the journey and made the guitza some swimmers and swimmers, who brave, completed the 9,500 meters of course.
Thank you very much to MallorKayak to come and support our swimmers, and THANKS, swimmers for your confidence!

Sa Dragonera (Mallorca): June 16th
On June 16th we will swim in Sa Dragonera!
Sa Dragonera is located in the westside of Mallorca, opposite the western coast of the municipality of Andratx, and very close to the town of Sant Elm. It is a discreet little islet, which has the beauty of home-made things.
The Sa Dragonera Natural Park is formed by the islets of Es Pantaleu, Sa Mitjana, and the Calafats reefs. It is one of the Balearic islets with the greatest conservation interest due to its bio-ecological and landscape aspects. Without a doubt it is a spectacular swim!
The area where we will swim, Sa Dragonera, is a long islet (4 kilometers) and quite narrow (one kilometer maximum), with a surface area of ??288 ha and 352 meters high at its peak. It is a prolongation of the Serra de Tramuntana, and it reproduces on a small scale the basic structural features of it, inclined towards the southeast and cliffs to the northwest.
On June 16 we will swim around the Sa Dragonera Park on a 9.5K crossing.

Swim Barcelona: Waves and Plan B
The eighth edition of Swim Barcelona by Neda el Món was held yesterday in a day marked by complicated maritime conditions, which forced the Neda el Món team to do a shorter swim in a controlled area on Mar Bella Beach.
The swim could finally be carried out in Mar Bella in a 1.500m circuit. Swimmers of the 5.700m swim made three laps around it, while participants of the 3,600m did two.
In addition, the Sports Council of Barcelona and Neda el Món organized short 50m,100m and 200m swims for young swimmers. A total of 180 children could swim yesterday in Mar Bella. The Kids race were also affected by sea conditions. In their case they were carried out on the right side of the breakwater of Mar Bella, where the sea was much calmer.
We take this opportunity to thank all the participants for their assitance, Neda el Món's Sea Operations team and the coastguards. Also, we would like to mention our partners: Zone3, Nutritape, VITAM, SafeCare, Tuath Studio, El Quinto Meta, el Centre Municipal de Vela i l'Ajuntament de Barcelona, as well as all the volunteers who made the event possible.
Thank you so much!
Safe Sea, special sunscreen for jellyfish stings
Safety is a basic tenet in Neda el Món, that is why we have decided to add the Safe Sea cream to our online store. Safe Sea contains unique and patented ingredients that protect against jellyfish stings in several ways:
Its slippery texture makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to get a grip.
Chemical (stoppers) in the lotion block up the sites where the stinging process is activated.
Other inhibitors (stoppers) block the chemical pathway.
Chemical stoppers reduce pressure in the stinging cells, preventing the jellyfish from firing its stings.
Safe Sea prevents the stimulation of jellyfish tentacles after contact with the human skin.
UVB / UVA Protection. Safe Sea contains physical, chemical and biological filters which reduce the effects of solar radiation on the skin.
Very water resistant. Clinical trials have proven that Safe Sea is very water resistant, enduring up to 80 minutes of aquatic activities. In case of minimum contact with water, Safe Sea's protection is prolonged.
Preservative-free. Safe Sea’s formula is sterile, so there’s no need for toxic preservatives such as parabens.
Water-in-Oil emulsion. Safe Sea’s Water-in-Oil emulsion gives the skin an excellent feel and keeps it hydrated.
Contains vitamins B and E. Vitamins B and E, which are present in Safe Sea, are important antioxidants for the human body.
With Bioplasma, GAG and Glycoproteins. Safe Sea’s formula contains Bioplasma-FA, the plankton extract with patented sting inhibitors. Together with GAG and glycoproteins, they improve the skin’s hydration and have anti-aging and anti-stress properties.
Available in two different formats in our online store.
