2010 Three Days In Three Seas

64 people total participated in the 3 Days in 3 Seas event in Israel. 30 swimmers traversed the entire distance of 30K over three days.

There were 25 different pilots, kayakers, volunteers, photographers, doctors and paramedics who escorted the mass marathon swim. Each day was a different adventure with the field divided into two groups. "The pelotons each day were incredible. In the Red Sea, a female dolphin escorted us for a few minutes. The Mediterranean Sea was glassy flat while the Sea of Galilee was a bit murky and cold," recalled Gadi. "It was amazing."

Gadi also provide the GPS courses for the groups in the Red Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Galilee.
