World´s longest unsupported swim
Jari will wear the blue execution of the new Landsort 459m throughout his whole adventure and we will with proud follow his journey.
Jari will on 10th of June begin the world’s longest unsupported swim from Stockholm, Sweden 500 km to Helsinki, Finland. A 37 day long extreme adventure where he will be averaging 13,7 km day. In order to complete his really impressive challenge he will need to bring a an Alpackaraft with a total weight of 85 kg. Packed with tent, desalination plant, dry food to cover all meals, swim gear and other essential gear. While swimming the raft is attached with a bungy cord with safe distance behind him in heavy seas.
Jari will wear our new Landsort 459m. A watch well adapted to the challenge this entails. In close collaboration with divers from the Swedish Navy, it was designed and constructed to sustain pressure at 459 meters; equivalent to the depth of the deepest ravine in the Baltic Sea, Landsort.
Jari will wear the blue execution of the new Landsort 459m throughout his whole adventure and we will with proud follow his journey. After finishing also do what we can together with Jari to contribute to a better and living Baltic Sea thru the vision BalticWaters.
BalticWaters implements large-scale, action-oriented environmental projects and conducts applied research to show which actions can contribute to a healthier sea and viable fish stocks. The projects are carried out on land, along the coast and in the sea. BalticWaters also works to develop and spread knowledge about the Baltic Sea's environment to the public, authorities and decision-makers. www.balticwaters.org
The goal is to increase knowledge about the challenges the ocean is facing and to build public opinion so that decisions are made and measures implemented.
Good luck Jari.
