As far as the race is concerned, we must highlight that any event involving an open water swimming race should take place with the approval of the Hellenic Swimming Federation, in accordance with FINA’s safety rules; as is always the case with “Santorini Experience”. For one more year, the open water swimming race will be implemented with the support of Santorini Boatmen Union and the assistance of Lifeguard Patrol that will take care of the safety of all participants.

The 45-year-old recognised athlete in open water swimming with several successes and a member of the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame (IMSHOF), has completed hundreds of open water swimming marathons and has swum twice the 90km distance.

As far as the swimming route is concerned, it is designed by the federal technical coach, with distinctions in the open water swimming races, in the Olympic Games and World Championships, Nikos Gemelos.

Mr. Gemelos highlighted: “The 4th “Santorini Experience” is a fact. It is with great pleasure to welcome great names of Greek athletes, as well as to see the interest of foreign athletes with great performances. We have designed and organised age groups, depending on the final number of participants. At the same time, we will have a separate category for those who choose to wear a full-body swimming suit (wetsuit category). Our goal is to satisfy every participant and our perspective is that every year we learn from our contestants according to their requirements and we adapt to their needs so that “Santorini Experience” does not remain in the memories of those taking part as a swimming race, but as a lifetime experience”.
