ACNEG

The Straits of Gibraltar
Swimming Association

Since 1999, our mission has been to promote, organize, control and carry out open water swimming crosses in order to unify criteria and ensure the smooth running of the event in close collaboration with the maritime authorities.

MORE THAN 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

HUMAN TEAM

A highly qualified staff, greatly experienced in accompanying swimmers and with a profound knowledge of the area, guarantees a high degree of success depending on the qualities of the swimmers.

TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT

We take care of the bureaucratic procedures with the maritime administrations of Spain and Morocco as well as making available (with the payment of corresponding fees) the equipment and human resources legally required for the swim.

CERTIFICATION

At the end of the crossing and once verified by our team that the swim was in compliance with the established rules, the Association will provide the necessary documentation to certify the crossing. This documentation is accepted by official international organizations.

And participants will be included in the official list of swimmers who have crossed the Strait of Gibraltar in its different modalities.
