Arctic Swim – ЭТО ВЫ
I participated at the first Arctic Swim in August 2017 I expected an adventure and I got a really impressive Open water competition at Gods forgotten land. With a really beautiful nature and a wonderful sea. with a watertemperature of about 8° it was perfect to have an amazing neoprenswim in cold water in the mid of summer. It was a really great experience in the family of X-waters.
One day this summer I was surfing the internet and I found a web that was presenting a swimming race in the Barents Sea. Wow I said. I already been in the Polar circle for a swimming race but this one is even northern. I thought that it would have been a very nice race but very difficult to organize and for me very far to reach but I booked anyway. I immediately discovered a group of very professional organizer. From the beginning they were very helpful for the Visa procedure and I hadn't any problem in obtaining it in a very short period. As soon as I arrived in Murmansk I felt very comfortable because all the informations for the logistic part of the race were updated and I didn't had any problem in finding the bus to Teriberka on Saturday morning. All the accommodations were ready for everyone. The logistic part of the organization is very important for the athlete and when is managed so well by the organizer is really a great thing. Unfortunately many times you don't find this competence. The races were organized very well and I felt secure every moment of the swim. There were boats and always people watching at me. When you swim in cold water without a wet suit this is what you ask for. On my opinion everything was perfect and I can't find something to blame for but the best thing I found is the friendly spirit we had in the two days of the swims. We were all friends without any competitive feelings and from the organizer to the last swimmer the only thought was to have fun and relax. This is what I am searching on my swimming trip around the world. Thanks for your big job. see you next year. Volga river is waiting for me.
