History

In 1886 Daróczy baron (resident of Paks, Hungary) along with his friends decided to visit a new pub on the other side of the river, 7 km distance along the shore in a town called Uszód. The event was so successful that it became a tradition. In 1990 Janos Gyulai (a former engineer of Paks Nuclear Power Plant) to keep the tradition alive started to organize the swimming event with an extended distance of 15 km, from Paks to Kalocsa. In 2015 Mr. Gyulai announced retirement, but willing to support and consult on technical matters with the OWT team.

Gyékényes

Gyekenyes

History

Gyékényes is in the immediate vicinity of the Croatian border, only 30 min from Nagykanizsa by car. The gravel pits of Gyékényes have been operating since 1920 at the municipal border, and due to their gravel-beds the lakes are so clean that the range of vision underwater is up to 8 metres. The largest quarry lake is the 12-15 metres deep Kotró, but it goes as deep as 25-30 metres near the extraction. The diving base at the southern lakeside hosts a great number of international and domestic events every year, like the National Championship of Orientation Dive organized by the Hungarian Divers Federation. The owners of the lake sent quite a few safe shipwrecks to the bottom for spectacle, so the divers can find speed boats, cars and pedalos down there. Besides technical preparation, diving also provides a chance to discover the living environment underwater, because divers often encounter carps, breams, pikes and catfish. So, our travelers can get an environmental experience too, besides challenge.
