Swimming...

16 Aug. 2015

After 5 years of thinking about it and after two years of talking about it, last week we finally did it - we swam from Europe to Africa through the Strait of Gibraltar... We, that is Carlos, Maki and myself, could´t have been prepared more differently for that event.

Carlos, dedicated almost a year of intensive, properly structured swim training and was fully motivated and focused. And than there were Maki and myself who talked a lot more about the swimming than actually trained for it. One could blame it on being overly confident in own skills, or entirely ignorant regarding the challenge ahead, maybe it was a mixture of both, supported by the fact that I personally really don´t like swimming...

Once in the water, the difference in preparation could´t have been more obvious. Carlos could not only have done it a lot faster than he did, because he had to wait for us all the time, he also described the trip as "very pleasant" - To me it was one of the most difficult things I ever did. 

 

But, even though we didn´t start off very promising, somehow we made it to the other side!! 

We managed to do the 20km long swim in 4 hours and 44 minutes. 

If you´re interested in more details or like to try it yourself one day, please contact us any time or have a look at the website of the Strait Swimming Organisation of Tarifa. http://www.acneg.com
