The logo of the race‘I have surpassed my plans and instead of 209 km I managed to swim 250 km.  However, psychologically it was more difficult to return to the Sea after the first attempt failed .’ said Vimantas Urbonas , on his way to Lithuania from Gotland. on the 21 of August after successfully completing his swim over the Baltic Sea.

According to Urbonas the weather conditions were much more favourable during this leg of the swim.  At some stretches the water temperature was as warm as +19C, the wind blew from the back which also helped.

Vidmantas Urbonas is already thinking about repeating his swim over the English Channel.  The first attempt failed due to the bad weather conditions.
