Swimming for the local environment & children
In 2019 we decided to support the newly formed Ionian Environment Foundation (IEF) in addition to The Smile of a Child. The IEF is the newest member of a collective of environmentally focused funds covering Ibiza, St Vincent & the Grenadines, The Aeolian Islands, the Cyclades, Sri Lanka, Barbados, Menorca & Mallorca.
JOIN THE FUN
After three successful swims in 2014, 2016 & 2018 we are now looking to go bigger and better. Register for 2019 and help two wonderful local charities.
Albania Overboard is for swimmers of all abilities who are looking for a fun challenge to sign off the summer.
The founding swimmers
Although both London based, Nick Lemis and Nick Cookson consider Corfu to be their true home. Both have family members who are permanent residents of Corfu and will always have an indelible link to the island. Having benefited so much from Corfu and its surrounding waters, they are keen to give something back to the people and the environment that make Corfu such a special place. Through their Kerkyra Foundation they have raised monies for several local charities and will continue to do so through fun events in the future… watch this space!
