A new record was broken last year for the speed at which places for the swim across the El Río strait sold out. In less than 24 hours all 675 places had been filled. The swim involves crossing the 2600 metre stretch of water between the islands of Lanzarote and La Graciosa. Since the first crossing in 1993, when about 50 swimmers completed the race, the event has gone from strength to strength.
