About Event

This was the most prestigious swim I swam in South Africa. I was fortunate to have swum around the island where Sir Nelson Mandela was captured for about 20 years. I experienced all the weather of SA in this swim, and there were loads of jellyfishes stinging all over the body, thick blanket of fog then suddenly sea becomes choppy  It was a great swim, I am second-fastest swimmer of this route.
