I Sailfish Lanzarote Openwater – nothing is impossible

After months of hard work, we finally met on the 16th of May at the Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen, to launch the first edition of the Sailfish Lanzarote Open Water.

With almost perfect weather conditions, since there was nearly no wind and therefore a very calm sea, swimmers and triathletes from all over the world gathered at the beachfront, ready to jump into the water.

  • Raul Santiago Betancor and Alice Franco, the winners of the I Sailfish Lanzarote Open Water.

The international representation of the swimmers put the bar very high, but in the end a Canarian citizen won the race. The young swimmer Raul Santiago Betancor from Gran Canaria showed of his talent during the two lapse circuit. He was the first to cross the finish line at the time of 00:45:39. The Argentine Damián Blaum ranked the second place (00:46:58) and the third position on the podium went to the Brazilian Samir Botelho (00:48:08).
