Objective

Sueño 88 is an initiative by the Night Train Swimmers and Swim4Good, two organizations that use swimming as a vehicle to raise money for non-profit organizations. Sueño 88's goal is to raise US$100,000 to benefit Worldreader whose mission is to eradicate illiteracy by delivering the largest culturally relevant library to the world’s poorest people—digitally and inexpensively.

Logistics

Sueño 88 will depart at 9 am on 3 June with a goal time of 50 hours maximum. The swimmers will be escorted by MARIANA, a 52' twin diesel cruiser co-captained by Alejandro Abarroa and Antonio Caballero, both of La Paz, Mexico. Sueño 88 will start from Tecolote Beach on the La Paz peninsula with a destination of the Topolobombo buoy on the beach.
