Strategy

Sector 1. Tivenys to Tortosa, the river is favorable, with strong currents, you can swim in an average time of two hours, swimming approximately 15.000 meters. You can reach speeds of 10 km/h..

Sector 2. Tortosa to Campredó, The current falls and the river widens and the time increases considerably for swimming the following 10.000 meters. In this sector seize the rest of current strength and a good navigation are essential.

Sector 3. Campredó to Amposta, to swim the reamining 5.230 meters is more difficult and where the kayaker should encourage their swimmer. In addition to the accumulated fatigue, mental fatigue and the vision of the goal we can find us with winds from the east thath difficult our progress, even creating the sensation of swimming upstream. The sea breeze is more present on shiny days and usually appears after noon.

Good nutrition and hydration throughout the race can avoid moments of extreme fatigue at the end of the race and cramps when leaving the water. For this reason, primarily, the goal is done into the water, so the swimmer may take time to cool down and exit the water.
