For both Swimmers & Non Swimmers:
You will notice below that there are two price options. Those two price options below are based on two hotel choices for you choose from depending on your budget as follows:
- Option 1: Cost 675 EGP for two nights – Accommodation will be on a bed & breakfast basis in a 3 star hotel called Negresco Hotel. It is one of the best 3 star hotels in Marsa Matrouh. It is a very clean, with newly furnished modern rooms located right on the Corniche (been to it & loved it).
- Option 2: Cost 975 EGP for two nights – Accommodation will be on a bed & breakfast basis in a 5 star hotel called Belle Veu Hotel (a Beu Site sister hotel but newer , fancier & more modern)- Just simply the best in Marsa Matrouh overlooking the best beaches in town.
Both hotels are simply great so choose the appropriate option for you when booking your place.
Cost of The Relay Race: (for swimmers) 350 LE each – This includes the race, the felluca which will accompany each team, a sea food lunch, snacks & fruits, water & beverages (hot & cold) on the yacht
Cost of Yacht Day use (for non-swimmers) 400 LE : This includes a full day on the yacht cruising the beaches of Marsa Matrouh, a sea food lunch, snacks & fruits, water & beverages (hot & cold) on the yacht
Transportation to Marsa Matrouh: A Deluxe air conditioned, comfortable bus can be arranged for depending on the number of people who need it – The cost will be approx. 350 per person two ways
The Swimming Race: Individual or Relay Teams
The entire swimming course will be 8KM long.
You may do all the 8K on your own- (please indicate that on the registration form) or you may choose to do it in a relay team of 5 swimmers each completing as many kilometers or as little as you decide amongst yourselves (it will be your choice so long as you as a team complete the 8KM)- 4 main swimmers & one spare
Each team of 5 will be assigned a felluca throughout the race for the resting swimmers.
There will be 3 other fellucas accompanying the individual swimmers.
We will take the yacht from the marsa & go to Fayrooz Bay where each team will be assigned a felluca & we will all start the race all together.
All you need to do is decide who your team of 5 swimmers will be & decide who will start first & who will end the race & how many kilos will each one swim.
Everyone will start the race at the same time, & when each team arrives to the final destination they will be given a stick with their swimming completion time.
The team who arrives first to the final destination is the winner & gets first place, the second to arrive will get second place etc..
May the best team win–:) but at the end of the day we will all be winners for completing such a long swim.
There will be awards for the first three winning teams, as well as finisher certificates for all swimmers.
The yacht can accommodate up to 40 persons – so we will have 7 teams of 5 swimmers & 5 individual swimmers
Each swimmer is allowed to bring only one 1 non swimmer adult guest
Kids 7 years old or less can accompany their parents on the yacht for free (1 child max)
Kids 8 years or older, will have to pay full for the yacht day use & lunch as they will eat & occupy a spot on the yacht which otherwise could be given to a participating adult.
Thanks for participating in this unique swimming adventure trip
Looking forward to swimming with you.
