On October 7th 2011 the weather turned for a brief time better and just before the sunrise we jumped into the water with a minimum of 15km of swimming ahead. After 17,2 km and only 3:50 hours we reached Morocco, surprisingly much faster than we all expected. Maybe the Orcas that were behind us at some stage made us swim a little faster (see picture).
However - much more important than the time for the crossing was the following fact:
More than € 10,000.00 have been donated. This was the great win for the orphans in Africa.
