Ready to dive into water heralded in legends for centuries? You'll swim across the Messina Strait from Sicilia Via Fortino in Sicily, to Canitello, Calabria in Italy with strong currents in your favor. With water at 73-77 degrees Fahrenheit, (23-25 C) you can shed that wetsuit and soak up the blue Mediterranean - and the delicious food and wine in the region! You'll be joined by our Italian Coach Alessandro, as well as Captain Tomasso and Coach Pedro.
Your fee includes coaches, safety support, vessel, and permits - all that is needed for the swim itself. As part of your registration fee, you will receive a finisher's medal, tee, and certificate, an award ceremony lunch, transportation to the briefing, WWS International Membership, and a Saturday orientation with refreshments.
At the time of submitting your application, the full fee of $450 must be paid. (international members fee $383 )
