About the sea temperature in Medes

5/1/2024

medes

The sea temperature on the Costa Brava is currently 15ºC. And the forecast is that by the weekend of May 5 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 15th 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.

Only 3 days to register to the Neda el Món Illes Medes per la Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS that we will run on the 5th May. 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 year 2022 onwards, Neda el Món transformed 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 and a meet-and-greet with the best swimmers.

Here you have all the info.

Freesowl, a new way to explore seas, rivers and lakes

3/18/2024

manresa

Our swimaddict James Manresa introduces Freesowl, bringing a new way to explore the coasts of seas, rivers, and lakes by swimming self-sufficiently.

The backpack, eco-designed and produced with materials partly recovered from the oceans, can carry everything needed for multi-day excursions, alternating between swimming and walking as desired. The experience can be personalized with accessories such as solar panels to recharge electronic devices, a multi-support pole to carry a camera, or even pockets to store trash collected from the sea, among others.

"In 2009, I felt the need to travel along a coast swimming, similar to how hikers walk in the mountains, but there was no backpack to do it, so I built one myself," explains James Manresa. "I tested the new prototype by exploring Cap de Creus and sections of the Ebre River, among others, and it went so well that I felt it was time to share it."

Freesowl is generating a lot of interest among swimmers, travellers, adventurers, and sports enthusiasts in general. This has led the creator to fund the launch of limited first units at special prices through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter from March 12th to April 12th.

Freesowling represents a new milestone in the rise of sustainable activities in open waters, allowing users to enjoy an unprecedented playful and immersive experience with the awareness that a portion of the profits will be dedicated to cleaning plastics from rivers and seas.
