In past years we have seen groups that island hop by swimming from one island to another. Paros is always included because it is less than one mile to Antiparos and a little more than a mile to Naxos. So when we heard about a cross channel swim from Paros to Antiparos with free food and drink at the finish, we decided to participate—as observers not swimmers.
We enjoyed a delightful Saturday evening. It was a great photo/video opportunity so we assembled a few of them in this video.

Nice event! Do they have a boat out as well?

Yes, there were several escort boats as well as a line of buoys to keep swimmers from the ferry route.
Everything went well and they are prepared if it doesn't.
