After the crossings, and while we enjoy our One Day Dj's, all the organisation and the swimmers you want will close the party with a popular Paella at Hotel Panorma, right next to the arrival point. With popular prices (€ 14 adults, € 9 children), you can book a place here.


Only one week to register to Medes Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS!

5/24/2022

ok

Only one week to register to the Neda el Món Illes Medes per la Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS that we will conduct on the 5th June. Medes is a unique and very special open waters event. Very special for two reasons: because it is the only solidarity open waters event from Catalonia which destinates 100% of the benefits to the TV3 Marathon, and because it takes place at the Medes Islands Natural Park, a superlative natural environment.

From this year 2022 onwards, Neda el Món is going to transform this open waters competition into a great event: You will be able to choose the length of the crossing according to your swimming possibilities, there will be a crossing for kids, the best brands will be displayed, One Day Dj's, a meet-and-greet with the best swimmers, and we will finish with the Closing Paella.

Here you have all the info.

Medes 2022 postponed until 5th June

5/6/2022

medesjuny

Unfortunately, the forecast for Sunday May the 8th is getting worse and we will have Tramuntana during the whole day. With the new forecast, we don't see any options for swimming in the Medes. We’ve valued that with the paddle surf team and kayaking team and they won’t be able to get to the Medes either. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the safety of swimmers in these conditions.

We also don't want to waste your time. Knowing that we will not be able to do anything attractive enough, we prefer to postpone the crossing until next June the 5th. We know that there is no ideal solution, but we think that this decision will allow you to enjoy and, above all, not suffer. Surely on June 5 we will be able to enjoy the open water, the Medes, a better sea and a better temperature, both outside and inside the water. The whole program is as it was, but on June 4th and 5th. As always in these cases, we reopen registrations.

Obviously this decision is very sad for us. The work behind it is terrible! But we will enjoy it in June for sure! Thanks for your understanding!


About the previous test and the sea temperature in Medes

4/30/2022

ma

On Saturday previous the event, Neda el Món and a group of swim-addicts did the test for Medes. And we did it thinking especially about the temperature of the sea water. And we swam without troubles, smoothly. The sea temperature on the Costa Brava is currently 15ºC. And the forecast is that by the weekend of May 7 and 8 it will rise to a maximum of 16ºC. Taking into account this scenario, we have obviously asked ourselves questions. And we've taken those questions to the experts. Can we normally organise the 13th Neda el Món Illes Medes per la Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS normally?

The unanimous answer was yes, but with some recommendations for swimmers:

  • Only those who are very, very adapted to swimming in cold water can do so without wetsuit.
  • As a general rule, everyone should wear wetsuits to avoid being exposed to cold water for too long time.
  • It is also recommended to use neoprene gloves, socks and even swimcap for those who suffer the most from the cold.
  • You need to keep calm when entering to the water. The feet, hands and, above all, the head will suffer from the cold at the initial moment. You need to relax, not get overwhelmed and keep swimming calmly because this feeling will go away in 3 or 4 minutes. Then you can even enjoy the cold water.

These recommendations will allow you to swim all distances without any problems, including 5.1k. If you feel more comfortable with shorter distances anyway, no problem if you want to switch to shorter distances. Just ask us at info@nedaelmon.com and we will proceed with the change.


8 new spots for Bonifacio 2022!

4/29/2022

bonifacio

8 new spots to cross the Strait of Bonifacio with Neda el Món! The Strait of Bonifacio crossing by Neda el Món & ZOGGS will take place throughout the spring-summer of 2022, with the 4 previous training sessions between Lloret, El Masnou and Calella, and which will end with the crossing in the last week of September 2022. You're still on time!

Like the Strait of Gibraltar, the Strait of Bonifacio has become one of the great challenges for open water swimmers in recent years. The Strait of Bonifacio is the sea channel that separates the island of Corsica (France) from the island of Sardinia (Italy) and connects the Tyrrhenian Sea with the western part of the Mediterranean Sea. The crossing is between 13k and 15k long. You have all the info here.


Training camps for all the swimmers registered in Gibraltar, Bonifacio and Cap de Creus

4/25/2022


On the weekend of April 16 and 17, Neda el Món organized the first training camp of 2022 for swimmers who have registered for the challenges of Gibraltar, Bonifacio and Cap de Creus. It was an intense two days with an informative briefing, a pool session and a sea session in Lloret de Mar. Neda el Món organizes 4 training camps for these swimmers throughout the season. Next stop, El Masnou and Arenys on May 28 and 29, with pool and sea sessions again.

We have attached a personalized video in slow motion of one of our swimmers in the pool of Lloret de Mar. We made one for each of our swimmers!
