CC photo #129: Sea swimmers ready for the SFS 2005


A team photo before the “Skálafjarðarsvimjingin 2005”, a swim we arranged twice here in the local swim club. We’re situated at the mouth of Skálafjørðurin, the longest firth on the Faroe Islands, some 15 kilometers long and only 600 across here at the mouth, so it is only natural to dream of taking the short route. This one was rough, weather-wise, some swimmers made it in about 10 minutes, while others struggled for up to an hour against the head-on current.
