Traversata dello Stretto

The first race is the 5.2 km 45th annual Traversata dello Stretto. First crossed in 1930, the Strait has strong currents and natural whirlpools that make for a challenging and enjoyable event to do and watch, especially on a clear day. The Traversata dello Stretto starts at Torre Faro, crosses the Strait of Messina to a turn in Cannitello in Calabria on the Italian mainland, then traverses along the Italian coast and finished in Villa San Giovanni. The second race is the Trofeo Baia di Grotta. The third race is the 1.8 km Trofeo Onda Azzurra along the Calabria coast. The fourth race is 3.7 km Favazzina-Scilla swim in late August. The fifth race is the 5.1 km Memoria Nino Sofi. The sixth race is the 3 km Città di Reggio Calabria in September.
