Rumors Of Another Batalla de Rande

Rumors Of Another Batalla de Rande

Word on the shoreline has it that the Batalla de Rande is coming back for its third edition in 2014.

The 27 km swim, that owes its name to the battle that took place in 1702 in the channel, is between the islands of Cíes de Vigo and San Simón in Spain.

The Asociación Deportiva Islas Cíes – San Simón is a non-profit organization whose main goal is to keep the original spirit of the challenge and to present a unique challenge to those who dare. The event has three main sections that are fraught with currents and tidal flows with water that does not exceed 15ºC: the first is 10 km, the second is 12 km, and the third is when the swimmers finally enter the San Simón inlet to reach the island.

Organizer Loli Paz will be announcing more information very soon.
