Jean Swims the Dead Sea

Jean Swims the Dead Sea

Personal message

The Dead Sea is a masterwork of nature in all aspects; geological, ecological, historical. The lowest place on earth and one of the saltiest bodies of water! The swim, which stretches over 16km between the widest points of the Dead Sea, will start in Jordan and end in Israel. With water at a temperature of around 22degrees in November – and a salt content 10 times that of the normal ocean – the team are in for what could be a fairly uncomfortable swim! The viscosity of the water due to the mineral content will also create a much more difficult passage.

Madswimmer is joining forces with an international group, as well as an Israeli swim team. The international team is swimming for the benefit and awareness of the Dead Sea itself and will incorporate swimmers from Jordan and Israel. Madswimmer will also make this awareness known, however their charity will remain 100% the sponsorship of underprivileged children in Africa.
