On May 18, 2019 X-Waters Montenegro 2019 open water swimming will take place in the Bay of Kotor (Montenegro)!
Kotor Bay is the southernmost fjord in Europe. Here is quite warm, and what is not the least, calm water and stunning picturesque views - both from the water and from the surrounding mountains. This is where the open water swimming competitions will be organized.
Distances of competitions: 1 mile, 4.5 km, 7 km, as well as children's starts.
Distances of 7 and 4.5 km will be between two rival islands: St. George, on which the Benedictine abbey stands, and the islands of Gospa od Škrpela (Madonna on the reef) - the only man-made island of the Adriatic. This island was built by the inhabitants of the city of Perast as opposed to the domination of neighboring Kotor from the skeletons of flooded ships and stones delivered by passing ships in the form of a kind of "tax". The Church of the Mother of God on the island is one of the main attractions of the bay.Registration for the children's X-KIDS swim in Montenegro is announced open!
Small participants will be able to test themselves at one of the distances: 50 m and 200 m Children's starts will take place on the beach of the main location of the X-WATERS Montenegro 2019 swim, Bay of Kotor, Risan and will be separated in time with the main race of 1 mile, 4 , 5 and 7 km.
