Castellorizo is known in Greek as Megisti and, in Turkish, as Meis. It is the smallest and most easterly of the Dodecanese Islands situated roughly halfway between the well-known island of Rhodes and the major Turkish Port of Antalya. The race is part of the Kaş Festival organised by the Kaş Municipality.
Ufuk Güven explains, “There is not a strong current in the course and we expect the water temperature to be around 22°C. Swimmers must be at least 18 years of age and must undergo a health check by a physician before the race. They also must be able to swim 1500m in less than 30 minutes.
