Boğazıçi (Bosphorous Swim), An Intercontinental Crossing

The 6.5K International Bosphorus Swim (Boğazıçi) from Asia to Europe will hold its 22nd race in July 2010. Swimmers cross the Bosphorus (or Bosporus, Βόσπορος in Greek, İstanbul Boğazı in Turkish),from the north to the south. With the course so wide, the swimmer obviously decide to swim off in different directions.

The Boğazıçi is a continental crossing that should not be missed by adventurous open water swimmers. For more information in Turkish, go here. For information in English, go here. For more photos, go here.
