Successful participation in the “innocent” swim crossing organized by Desarrolla

As usual, on December 28, we organized this swim solidarity test of 1900m in collaboration with the Club de Regattas Perillo and Oleiros City Council, in A Coruña.

In this edition there were more than two hundred swimmers, many of them came from numerous points of Galicia and Asturias. This means a new participation record for a crossing test that grows year after year and that has become an open water classic, despite the low winter water temperatures, this time eleven as low as degrees.The money collected from inscriptions was donated entirely to the non for profit Solidaridade Galega.

In this VII edition, the winner of the women’s category was Sonia Braña, who won the podium in 30.15 minutes. The winner in the men’s category was, Manuel Regueiro, 25.13 minutes. Finally, the victory in the team category was obtained by the “Liceo Master”, a team made up of Daniel Abades, Gerardo Collazo, Mario Fernández, Pablo Carro and Sonia Braña. The deputy mayor of the town hall, Teresa Vázquez, witnessed the event and presented the trophies to the winners.
