Domenico Pellegrino is President of the C.N.S.V. and organizer of the annual open water swimming race in the Strait of Messina, a classic competition since 1954.

[edit] Strait of Messina

The Strait of Messina (Stretto di Messina in Italian, Strittu di Missina in Sicilian or the Messina Strait) is the narrow waterway between the eastern tip of Sicily and the southern tip of Calabria in southern Italy. It connects the Tyrrhenian Sea with the Ionian Sea within the central Mediterranean Sea. At its narrowest point, it measures 3.1 km (1.9 miles) in width, though near the town of Messina the width is some 5.1 km (3.2 miles) with a maximum depth is 250 meters (830 feet).
