Two businessmen successfully swim 37km round Gozo and well on their way to raising €37,000 for the Malta Guide Dog Foundation

The men who swam around Gozo to raise much-needed funds for the Malta Guide Dog Foundation have successfully completed their mission.

Simon Zammit, 46, and Sammy Attard, 45, determinedly began their adventure at 7am on Saturday, the 22nd of October, launching themselves into the cold waters at Mgarr Harbour, Gozo, for their long-distance dip. The conditions on the day were pretty treacherous, with gale force winds of between three and five making things much harder for them as the swim progressed.

A number of local and foreign open water swimmers will be taking part in a challenging 5.5km swim from Gozo to Malta on 20 August.

A regular fixture in the annual calendar of events organised by Birkirkara St Joseph Club, the Gozo-Malta Open Water Swimming Competition will see these swimmers crossing from Ras il-Qala, which is the most eastern point in Gozo, to Marfa in the north of Malta.

The 5.5km swim is not for the fainthearted and participants are in the water for some 90 minutes on average.

Trophies will be awarded to the first three places in the male and female categories, and to the first male and female in the various other categories.

A MEMORABLE DAY FOR THE CLUB AND THE SPORT OF SWIMMING source: www.bkarastjoseph.com
The second race in the Birkirkara St. Joseph Open Water Swimming Championships for 2011, held yesterday, June 22, 2011, attracted a record number of competitors. For the first time the starting line hosted a three figure number, even though there was a number of regular swimmers who did not turn up. This has already placed open water swimming in par with road running, the latter, however, being around for decades.
