13 nedaddictes complete Rhodes-Marmaris... for now!

10/9/2023

celebration

They have done it again! All our groups crossed on Sunday, October 8, from Asia to Europe, from Turkey to Greece, from Marmaris to Rhodes. In total there were 13 swimmers who completed the challenge!

Our first group was Oceanos, with Núria Soriano, Josep Sanchez, Marc Grau and Jorge Perez from Spain and Benoit Lamour from France, with a time of 6 hours and 13 minutes. Subsequently, the Alia team, formed by Nicolas Felger (France) and Brian Lasky (USA, and without neoprene), completed the crossing in 7 hours and 54 minutes. Isabelle Van Passel (Belgium) and Bryan Main (USA, also without wetsuit) were part of the Allotria team, and they did it in 8 hours and 40 minutes. Finally, our last group, made up of Yana Lahvinenko (Ukraine, without wetsuit), Josep Llobet (Spain), Jean Bernard Esperance (France) and Albert Samper (Spain), crossed the finish line in 9 hours and 21 minutes, already late Rhodes night.

All groups left the Turkish island of Kizilada and arrived at Windy beach in Rhodes. During the journey, the Nedaddicts encountered winds from East to West, which diverted them on their path, and winds from South to North, which delayed them at times. Finally, in the second half of the journey, they were favored by the northwest winds, which allowed them to correct their trajectory and arrive victorious in Rhodes.

Next year, more and better at Rhodes-Marmaris. We already have the dates closed and you have all the information here.


A day later, two more swimmers in Bonifacio: 18 out of 18!!

After 16 of 16 nedaddicts on September 25 in the Strait of Bonifacio, on Tuesday the 26th two other nedaddicts, François Peyrot (France) and Marc Caballé (Spain, and founder and CEO of Neda el Món) also achieved the challenge.

In both cases, the swimmers had to overcome large currents against them in the last kilometer and a half, having to invest more than an hour to complete this small distance. François needed 5 hours and 5 minutes to complete 18.1km and Marc 6 hours and 15 minutes to complete 18.7km. They also both ended up in Capo Testa, in this case on the west side.

Congratulations Nedaddicts!


Resounding success in Bonifacio... one more year!

10/1/2023

bonifacio

Neda el Món continues with the same dynamics as last year and repeats 100% of the swimmers who manage to cross the Strait of Bonifacio between France and Italy! All the swimmers have completed the training and this has meant that they arrived in Bonifacio prepared to achieve the challenge in the best possible way. With a time of 5 hours and 15 minutes on average!

September 25th started early. At 8:02 we begin the crossing towards Sardinia. We left Capo Pertustato (Corsica) and headed towards Capo Testa. The groups were Tiburon, Limoges, Artem and Baltics. The first group was made up of Davide Tamborrini (Italy, the only one without a wetsuit), Pau Domeq (Spain), Paulo Torres (Portugal) and Raul Torres (Spain). This group managed to cross in 5 hours and 4 minutes. On the other hand, the Limoges group where we found people from Spain like Gabriel Trenzado, Miguel Bravo, Hector Quero and Juan Ramón Llorente and the Frenchman Richard Dacoury, managed to cross the strait in 5 hours and 23 minutes! The Artem group, made up entirely of Ukrainians Angelina Lypinska, Roman Domin, Yarolsav Ramonshko, Artem Panchenko and Sergii Matus, crossed in just 5 hours and 33 minutes. And the Baltic group, with Alejandrina Til (Russia) and Justas Narkevicius (Lithuania), achieved a time of 5 hours and 48 minutes for the Russian swimmer and just one minute later for the Lithuanian swimmer.

The 4 groups reached very similar times between them, and this is the result of the great coordination work of Neda el Món. But it is also part of the pre-crossing preparation of all swimmers from their own countries. Congratulations to all!!

Thank Lo Squalo Bianco, our motorboat supplier, for his excellent work. Grazie mille Lo Squalo Bianco!

On Monday 11th September the 4th group of Neda el Món crossed the Strait of Gibraltar. 4 out of 4 this year! 16 swimmers have fulfilled their dream with Neda el Món this year!

And this time, Omar Kadiri (Morocco), Brice Tranie (France), Caitlin O'Reilly (New Zealand) and Anthony Jowers (United Kingdom) did it in 6 hours and 4 minutes and swimming among dolphins! Omar, Brice and Caitlin did it without wetsuit.

The crossing was an exhibition of companionship from Brice, Caitlin and Anthony, who were all the time helping Omar to achieve the challenge together. Congratulations to all 4 of you and a pleasure to accompany you on this wonderful journey.


Another success of Neda el Món in Gibraltar!

After crossing!

After the crossing of the second group on Monday 4th September, on Tuesday 5th it was the turn of Alexander Malinin (Russia), Boris Najafov (Azerbaijan), Jaume Bombi (Spain) and Igor Rachkov (Russia). They had an incredible performance, given that the sea currents were not very favourable. All the time they kept the group compact, the result of the previous work during the whole year attending the training sessions held in Barcelona.

They reached a total time of 4 hours and 40 minutes and a total distance of 16.20 km. They were together all the time and enjoyed the crossing like never before!

Congratulations guys! And get ready for the next challenge of your life!


2nd Neda el Món Group to cross Gibraltar's Strait!

9/6/2023

Happy faces after amazing job!

After our first group crossed the Strait of Gibraltar in July, on Monday 4th September our second group of 4 swim addicts, Damien Catani (France), Alain Simac (France), Diego Cantillo (Costa Rica) and Madi Adilkhanov (Kazakhstan) did a spectacular job crossing the Strait of Gibraltar in less than 4h 33 minutes: total madness!

The four swimmers behaved as a team at all times, helping each other when one of them had a bad time.

The conditions were quite favourable, with currents allowing them to swim in a straight line from Tarifa Island to Punta Cires, a total of 15.2 km.


1st personalised OW Stage by Neda el Món

8/30/2023

stage

We debuted our brand-new Neda el Món experience between August 18 and August 25. We created a customized Open Water Stage based on the preferences provided by the swimmers, which included pool sessions with a variety of coaches and open sea sessions over various stretches of the Catalan coastline.

A wonderful experience for both the organization and the swimmers. Simply send an email to info@nedaelmon.com if you'd like to participate in this learning opportunity, and we'll create a stage specifically for you according to the number of days and swimmers that are available.

We're looking forward to experiencing more stages like the ones we've lately experienced!


Yana Lohvinenko: an heroine in Cap de Creus!

The sea is capricious. Jellyfish and currents don't warn, they just appear! This is what happened on the 8th of August during the attempt of Yana Lohvinenko, a Ukrainian swim addict more than prepared, to reach the Cap de Creus challenge: swimming from Port de la Selva to Roses. An unexpected and very strong current against from Cap de Creus to Cadaqués made Yana's dream impossible.

Nada el Món, with Yana's own approval, activated plan B and the challenge was completed in Cadaqués, specifically at Llaner Gran beach. From Port de la Selva to Cadaqués, 19.8km completed after 10 hours and 19 minutes swimming like a true heroine.

Yana has been an example before, during and after the swim, congratulations champion!


Menorca Mallorca: congrats to our extremist swimmers!

Last Tuesday 1st of August, 3 of our amazing swimmers, V Emma Vockins (Reading, UK), Pere Dalmau (Mataró) and Jeremías Mateo (Granollers), swam from Mallorca to Menorca. No more and no less than 37.8km. And in a great time: 12 hours and 24 minutes. Spectacular!

Although it was initially planned to make the journey from Menorca to Mallorca, the weather conditions made it advisable to make the attempt the other way round: from Cap des Freu (in Mallorca) to Far d'Andrutx (in Menorca), from 7.32am to 7.56pm. More than half a day swimming to fulfil their dream. Proud to work for you, a lesson in swim addiction! Congratulations our friends!


3rd Training Camp: ready to go!!

7/25/2023

3rd

On July 15 and 16, we held the 3rd training camp for the swimmers who have registered for the crossings with Neda el Món. On Saturday we ran a session of almost 4km in the El Masnou Yacht Club swimming pool, and on Sunday we did a 15km sea training between Santa Susana and Arenys de Mar, previously transferring all the swimmers, kayakers and organization by train from Arenys to Santa Susana. It was a very hard training, but we already have our swimmers ready for their challenges in 2023. Ready to go!!

We no longer have places for Gibraltar, nor for Menorca Mallorca, nor for Cap de Creus, but we still have 1 registration available for Bonifacio and 1 for Rhodes Marmaris. These two challenges provide a spot for Gibraltar 2024!
