Colin Hill stays busy participating in ice swims, organizing events and developing new products, but he still finds time to train and compete against the best. Hill will take a little time off of his Chillswim responsibilities this week and will represent Great Britain at the upcoming 25 km Santa Cruz – Desertas Natural Swim in the Madeira Islands between Madeira and the Desertas.

Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago located in the north Atlantic Ocean, west and slightly south of Portugal.

The 25 km race is for individuals (Ilhéu Chão) and duo teams (Bugio crossing) where the water temperature is expected to be 22ºC.

Hill will compete alongside Portugal’s Duarte Paulini, Carla Patrícia, Davide Góis, Frederico Silva, Mário Bonança, Humberto Gonçalves, João Pereira, Carolina Ornelas, Catarina Alves, Paulo Silva, Pedro Sousa, Sérgio Pereira, Ricardo Jardim, and Marco Silva.
