CROSS BALTIC CHALLENGE 2018
170 km/3 days/
6 swimmers/1 goal
The attempt of the first swim in the history of the Baltic Sea
Route and date
170 KM BY THE Baltic SEA [DZIWNÓW (POL) – KASEBERGA (SWE)] The route from Dziwnów to Kaseberga in a straight line is the shortest distance between Poland and Sweden – about 170 km. In practice, however, it will be difficult to maintain a perfectly straight course, so we are counting on the fact that our swimmers will have 190 km to swim! Assuming an average swim rate of 3 km/h, the whole trip may take over 3 days.
We planned the trial of crossing the Baltic Sea in July, when statistically the waters are the calmest and the weather is the most stable. The final date of the start will not be known until the last moment – weather conditions will decide for us to sail for sea. This means that swimmers will have to be ready for action at any time.
At the very thought of the project I have shivers! I am looking forward to the final of our project.

The most motivating for me to train is the vision of something big, upcoming competition.
