The 36th Yasuji Fusano swimming crossing, initially scheduled for Sunday 17 July, will take place on Sunday 10 July in the town of Lloret de Mar. The swimming event is organised by the Lloret de Mar Swimming Club and bears the name of the club founder, Yasuji Fusano.
The Yasuji Fusano swimming crossing in Lloret de Mar has two distances that require a minimum age to participate:
- 1,500 metres: those over 13 years of age (born in 2009) may participate.
- 500 metres: those over 9 years of age (born in 2013) may participate.
The registration for these two distances is open until Friday 8 July at 8 p.m. with a maximum of 400 numbers. You can sign up via the Lloret de Mar Swimming Club website.
The registration fee is the same for both distances of the swimming crossing, 12€ for federated swimmers and 15€ for non-federated swimmers. The organisation reminds that the only valid licence for open water swimming events is the licence of the Catalan Swimming Federation; licences from any other federation will have to register as a non-federation member.
Participants can only register for one of the two distances and failure to comply with this rule will incur costs of €2 for management procedures. To avoid crowds, the delivery of numbers and chips will be staggered and participants will be informed of the collection times via email.
Like every year, registration is open to all those who want to participate, always respecting the intinerary and the rules established in the regulations. The organization recommends that the clubs and the participants themselves register only if they have demonstrated the ability to complete the itinerary.
The two distances crossing start will take place at Passeig de Sa Caleta in Lloret de Mar. The 1,500-meter distance crossing will be at 9:30 a.m. and the 500-meter distance will take place an hour longer, at 10:30 a.m.
