OWS in the Azores

JayJay Outside Boston, MAMember

Has anyone ever gone to the Azores for OWS? My Google searches pull up limited (and often old) information. The islands look like a great place to swim, but I have no idea if there is any info out there that can help me determine if it is a place to try. Being from Boston, there's a direct flight so it's got that going for it. Any info would be helpful - thanks.

    Dear Jay Last weekend some friends tried to swim 40 kms between islands in Azores. In this moment I am in Madeira Island, trainning for World Masters Champ, but I will ask my friends if there is some event shortly. Very soon there will have a blog on OWS site regarding events in this islands (Madeira and Azores).

    This is awesome - I was just looking at photos of these beautiful islands a few weeks ago, measuring the distance around islands and daydreaming. Thanks @nitro for any info you can share!
