carte postaleSwimming gives me a feeling of freedom and escaping. To swim in a natural environment, without a wetsuit and without swim fins, gives me the sensation to be as free as the water.” It is in that state of mind that I decided to embark on a new challenge called “ Prison Island Swims.”

The goal of this challenge is to link famous prisons located on islands to the closest continent by swimming. Being prepared to swim in very cold or very hot waters is unavoidable, but it also is necessary to be ready physically and mentally to overcome the extreme conditions that those open water swimmers go through: strong ocean currents, howling winds, and the marine life
