2nd edition of the Formigues Islands - Medes Islands swim


Formigues Medes

14 swimmers jumped into the water on Saturday to swim the 22,3 km of the Formigues - Medes crossing. Of those 14, 7 had to abandon and 7 more reached Medes after swimming for more than 9 hours.

The toughness of the swim caused the withdrawals around the kilometer 10, specially among those swimmers that were not wearing a wetsuit.

The swimmers that completed the crossing are: Michael Pranckl, Rubén Sarlé, Boguslaw Wozniak, Sergio Castelnuovo, Pere Dalmau, Loic Tordo and Josep Maria Caireta.

Congratulations to all participants, those who finished and those who did not, because they all deserve our admiration. A big hug to you all!

4th Sailfish Sa Dragonera swim!


sa dragonera

The 4th edition of the Sailfish Sa Dragonera swim held on June 1 in Majorca, had a high turnout, a great atmosphere and a palpable spirit of self-improvement among all participants.

Most of the swimmers opted for the long distance, 9.5 km around the island, which was very hard in some sections due to the wind that got up in the mid morning. A tough swim that became a test of physical and mental endurance for the swimmers.

At the end of the event, the participants enjoyed a delicious paella at the Andratx Yatch Club.

We would like to take this opportunity to send our deepest gratitude to all the sponsors, contributors and volunteers who once again made this iconic swim of the Swim the World calendar possible.
