Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Swim across the Strait of Gibraltar

published on 17.07.2013

The reporter Pere Renom has managed to swim across the Strait of Gibraltar to conduct a report for the program Quèquicom. He has faced currents, waves, wind, fog and tides, and has dodged about 90 large ships that circulate daily through the strait. He has covered a distance of 15.7 km in 3 hours and 50 minutes. The swim across has been carried out with the help of the Strait of Gibraltar Swimming Association (ACNEG). Throughout history, less than 700 swimmers have achieved this feat, a number five times less than the number of people who have climbed Everest. Beyond the sporting challenge, the report also explain the particular oceanographic, meteorological and nautical conditions of the Strait of Gibraltar. The report will probably be broadcasted in October.
