Kotlin Race, 25KM, St. Petersburg, Russia, to Kronstadt Island in the Gulf of Finland
Ladies & Gentlemen, wanted to make you aware of a marathon swim in Russia!
The Kotlin Swim is a 25K swim from St. Petersburg to Kronstadt Island in the Gulf of Finland.
The date of the swim is anytime, coordinated between the swimmer and the organizers. Most rules are what you'd expect, except maybe that the swimmer and his/her coach/assistant on the boat must be able to speak English and/or Russian.
The organizers help arrange all the support. For more information, here's the English version of their website. The main point of contact is Dmitriy Egorov at Meverick@mail.ru
If all goes well, my family and I should be in Moscow starting in August of this year. We should be there for about two years. While I cannot promise I can get away from work at a moment's notice, with enough time, I could probably arrange to join an MSF swimmer in St. Petersburg to help you with your swim.
