Neda el Món, together with its technical partner SwimEmotions, organize a swimming event that will take place the next 9th of October: a 20K swim, from Arenys de Mar to Malgrat de Mar.
The swim can be done solo or by relays in teams of 4 swimmers. The configuration of the swim will be the same we use for the Gibraltar Strait crossing. We will establish several speed groups and each speed group will be accompanied and guided by several support boats. Swimmers will be place in one of the following four groups, depending on their speed: 2,7k/h, 3k/h, 3,5k/h or 4k/h.
Travessia de 20k
Meeting time will be at 6:30am at the Nautical Base of Arenys de Mar. We are going to start the technical briefing at 7am and the start of the swim will be at 7:30am.
Regarding the feeding points, we will be stopping every 45 minutes and take a 1-minute break to eat or drink something. Every swimmer will have his feeding at the boat, together with a small bag with personal items.
Relays will be made when team members deem it appropriate.
The organization will provide a commemorative cap, a HEAD gift and a diploma for the challengers of the challenge, either individually or as a team.
In case the weather forecast is not good enough on Saturday, 25th September, we are going to swim the following day, Sunday 26th September. So, please, make your booking in Barcelona accordingly.
