Another Marathon Swim along the coast of Sosua
After the long distance swimmer Marcos Díaz swam on Sunday, September 18th, 2011 from the beach of Sosúa to the Acapulco beach at the Malecón of Puerto Plata, Juan Carlos Morales Plá swam on Saturday, November 29th from Sosúa to Playa Dorada.
Juan Carlos was 47 years old and only amateur swimmer, but still he did swim 9 miles through the waves of the ocean. Juan Carlos Morales Plá is now a year older, and he wants to do the marathon swim again along the north coast on Sunday, July 5th. But this time he is joined by Richard Strauss. Richard is a well-known personality in Sosúa and member of the famous Strauss family, former owner of Productus Sosúa in the beach town. Together they will start on Sunday, July 5th from half past ten in the morning to withstand the waves of ocean. The start is at Playa Bergantin and the finish is on Playa Camacho at the seawall of Puerto Plata. Both swimmers can count on a wildly enthusiastic audience at the finish.
