La Graciosa Lanzarote

This is a fabulous event, the 2600m crossing can be challenging depending upon the current and the party atmosphere is amazing. We’ve swam it a few times and can personally recommend this event.

Swimmers are due to depart from the Playa de Bajo Risco (Lanzarote) to Caleta de Sebo (La Graciosa) at 13:30 on the 30th September 2017.
