The Hotel & Spa La Residencia Puerto welcomed the swimmers of the last cross in 2018
After resting at the hotel the night before, the 4 swimmers, 3 spanish and a belgian, have begun the last swimming across the Strait in 2018.
Many swimmers cross every week the Strait of Gibraltar; the association ACNEG support and accompany them for the bureaucratic procedures as well as the security of the event. Two ships accompany the swimmers, giving them the correct course, caring for the swimmers’s health and registering all the informations of the crossing.
Yesterday, Alberto Frías (26), Dionisio Torre (48) and Carlos Ramón Linares and Bart Edmond De Rooze (43) left the Island in Tarifa at 11:04 am and after swimming a 15.3 km distance, they completed the cross in 4 hours and 4 minutes.
