On February 11, 2011, Rafal Ziobro from Poland will attempt to swim the Strait of Magellan from Tierra del Fuego to the American Continent. The Chilean Navy has permitted this swim. These are some of the most treacherous waters in the world. The merging current and winds create unpredictable and challenging conditions. He will be supported by our own Water World Swim Coach Julieta Nuñez.
Julieta Nuñez has swam the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel many times. After Ziobro’s crossing she will attempt to swim a mile in Antarctica. Only two people have attempted the Antarctica swim; Chilean legend Victor “Tiburon” Contreras and Lynne Cox from the USA
We are sending him our support and will be posting updates on these epic swims here on the blog. Stay tuned.
