Throw in a little surface chop with some manageable currents to sunny skies and clear waters…a much-appreciated formula for ocean swimmers looking for a reasonable challenge.

Arralial Swim Travessia No Mar is a 1.85 km swim that 200 swimmers enjoyed this week in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro.

Its organizer, RO2 Esportes, does a great job marketing and promoting the event including providing great graphics in the days leading up to the event won by Mayro Russano and Mariana Mello.
