Likewise, four categories have been contemplated in the journey: Senior, Master A, Master B and Master C, in male and female modalities. The councillor thanked the club "the effort and dedication" for the preparation of the event, a test that is "safe" is going to "consolidate in time" as a swimming crosssing "emblematic and reference for the city."

For his part, Fabián Villena, recalled the "unique scenario" for the swimming and advocated so that all swimmers take it into account, within the summer circuit", as happens with the crossing to the Island of Benidorm. "We want this test to become its first cousin," he underlined. For his part, Jonás Marín showed his gratitude to the City Council, councilors, sponsors and the rest of the city's swimming clubs. About the competition he said that it will be "spectacular" and that "it will surely remain in the memory of all the swimmers because it will be totally different to what we are used to: rock and very funny".
