Capri-Naples - Swimming Marathon
In 1949 Aldo Fioravanti and Cesare Alfieri, two passionate swimmers, were the first ones to cover the distance from Naples to Capri island in around 12 hours, at an average of 30 strokes per minute.
Capri-Napoli is one of the most fascinating and difficult competition until 1992 awarding long distance world title, now the crossing swimming race Capri-Napoli is a “FINA World Grand Prix” leg over a distance of 36 km as the crow file distance.
The Gulf of Naples has always been the suggestive “playing field” of this contest starting normally from Marina Grande (Capri) and finishing to the sea-front in Naples assigning the World title until 1992.
For the winners, the race lasts about 6 hours and 11 minutes and 6 hours and 45 minutes, according to sea and weather conditions.
The fascination of the sea marathons, much more tiring than the earth ones, just lies in the incredible effort going on for several hours in unnatural conditions.
