Margarita ‘Tita’ Llorens Bagur is going for another unprecedented marathon swim: this time, 90 km between the island of Ibiza and the coastal city of Dénia between Alicante and Valencia, Spain.

Last year, Llorens completed her longest swim to date: a 84.3 km swim between the islands of Ibiza and Mallorca in 28 hours 13 minutes. This July, she will try to out-do herself.

The president of the Menorca Channel Swimming Association and member of the 24-hour Club explains, “During the month of July, the water temperature is good, there are more daylight hours, and there are many days of calm sea.”

Depending on the wind and conditions, Llorens will make a decision whether to start from Eivissa (Ibiza) or Dénia.
