As a result of the preventive actions against COVID-19 (better known as coronavirus), the October 11 test had to modify its date, and postpone the event to the Posidonia Race day.

________________________________________________________________________

Ibiza is a paradise for its beaches. To sunbathe, yes. But also for swimming in open water. The Posidonia Race is an epic adventure on the waters of the Pitiusa island whose starting point is Cala d'Hort, in the municipality of Sant Josep. It is available in two distances, 10km or 5km so that each swimmer can choose the one that best suits their physical conditions.

With the neoprene allowed, the swimmers will surround Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell (only those at the distance of 10k) so that they will be able to see all the corners of these spectacular natural landscapes.

During the tour the swimmers will have buoys and zodiacs that will mark the course. Provisions will be available in the zodiacs and each participant will receive a welcome pack with a swimsuit.

Travel

The organization of the Posidonia Race offers two swimmers the choice of swimmers:

  • 10km: Departure from within the water at 100m in front of the Cala d´Hort beach. The swimmers head directly towards Es Vedrà to go around the whole of the two islands and return passing between buoy and coast. The goal is in the same place from where the start was made, where the organization will have judges and staff who will time the arrival and boats to attend to the swimmers.
  • 5km: Departure from within the water at 100m in front of the Cala d´Hort beach. The swimmers head directly towards Es Vedranell to turn around the buoy located in front of the island and return passing between buoy and coast. The goal is in the same place from where the start was made, where the organization will have judges and staff who will time the arrival and boats to attend to the swimmers.
