Another 100% Robben Island Crossing Success


Another momentous accolade  as all 13 Embark swimmers crossed the cold Atlantic 8kms  from Robben Island to Big Bay in Blouberg.

After 13 weeks of hard training with a 3 week break midway due to lockdown regulations (making it a 16 week journey), the day came to show the fruits of their training.

It's a coaches job to make sure everyone is not only physically, but mentally prepared to take on events - and although coach Nicol did have to crack the whip a few times, in the end the swimmers understood why.

We are ecstatically proud of another 100% crossing success with 10 of them being first timers (included in this were 2 skins swimmers) and 3 swimmers who crossed for their second time with Nicol because well....who does these kind of things once.

Big Bay Events once again looked after and guided each swimmer with perfection and professionalism and we cannot thank them enough for this.

Our next program will start 26 April, get in contact with Nicol at if you would like to be in the next group.
