Capri-Napoli is one of the most fascinating and difficult competitions in the world. Since 1992, helds a long distance world title, now the crossing swimming race Capri-Napoli is a “FINA World Grand Prix” leg over a distance of 36 km as the crow file distance.
The Gulf of Naples is the fascinating “race field” of this contest starting normally from Marina Grande at Capri (with only four exceptions: 1978 from Marina Piccola, 2010 from the Blue Grotto and in 1981 and 2017 with a race course below the coast in Naples for the prohibitive weather-marine conditions) and finishing to the sea-front in Naples assigning the world title, in a single race, until 1992. The 2017 edition of the race from Capri to Naples has been the 52nd one in 64 years of this famous crossing swimming race, the 15th one of the recent past (from 2003, after a break of 10 years).
This is an event organized by the Italian Marathon Swim Association. Water World Swim, as one of the sponsors is invited to participate by getting a limited number of spots available for only approved by WWS swimmers. So get yours soon and we’ll meet there next year!
