Teresa Planas and Matthew O’Connor announced the BEST FEST, their second annual open water swimming extravaganza in May 2014 in Colònia de Sant Jordi, Mallorca.

The BEST FEST is a 7-day, 10-event open water swimming festival ranging from 500 meters to 9.5 km along the beautiful island of Sa Dragonera (for information and bookings, visit www.swimtheworld.com).

All the events will take place between May 24th – 31st with the culmination on Sa Dragonera on June 1st.

The sea surrounding Colònia de Sant Jordi with its beaches of Es Trenc and Es Carbó and the coastline of Cap de Ses Salines is where the events are staged. “It’s one of the most spectacular and natural places of all Europe and the perfect surrounding for open water swimming,” says Planas.

There will be over €7000 in cash prices for the winners as well as lottery prices like swimming kits, hotel weekends, restaurant vouchers and clinics with David Davies, the 2008 Olympic 10K Marathon Swim silver medalist from Great Britain. If you are an open water swimming lover, BEST Fest is made for you.”
