Swim - Lobos to Corralejo - 15th Oct 2023

258 swimmers in the crossing from Lobos to Corralejo this Sunday.

The XXIV Crossing to Swim Isla de Lobos – Island of Fuerteventura will take place next Sunday, October 15, having registered a high rate of registrations in just an hour and a half, from the moment the deadline opened, reaching 258 registered swimmers. 258 swimmers in the crossing from Lobos to Corralejo this Sunday in the XXIV edition.

The crossing will have a route of 3,500 meters leaving from the Punta del Marrajo and arriving at the ramp of the marina of Corralejo.

The diversity of origins of the participants (Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Holland, USA, Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, Granada, Basque Country and a wide representation of all the Canary Islands) give a good account of the great expectation that this sporting event produces among swimming lovers, being more than 66% of the participants non-residents on our Island.

As every year, since the beginning of this Crossing, we will have the presence of outstanding swimmers of this sport such as ARANZAZU ARANEGA BENITEZ Canarian swimmer specifically from Tenerife, with multiple championships and records of Spain, Europe, the Canary Islands and this year, third in the world in Open Water, in the World Cup held in Japan. It is always the objective of this Society to combine sport and nature, and to promote inclusion in all areas of society through the practice of physical activity, as demonstrated, for example, by the age of the swimmers registered this year which is between 14 and 85 years.

The departure of the 258 participants will take place around 12:00 hours from Punta de Marrajo, in Isla de Lobos, while the arrival of the first swimmers is expected around 12:45 on the ramp of the Corralejo Marina. Previously, it will be carried out in the Nautical School, the control of the participants, the official photo, and later the boarding of the swimmers will be carried out in the Celia Cruz boat (approximately 11:30 hours). As in previous editions, security measures have been reinforced. The organization has developed a detailed security and emergency plan, which will be attended by Civil Protection, health team, and several support boats and canoes that will delimit and monitor the development of the test throughout its route.
