The North Sea Swim Meet 2018 (Nov. 2nd - Nov. 4th)
Welcome to the 45th edition of the North Sea Swim Meet. For the second time in in the capital of the southern region of Norway, Kristiansand.
The first «North Sea Swim Meet», was arranged in 1973 as a result of the cooperation between Rogaland Swimming District (RSK) and Phillips Petroleum Co Norway with support from the Norwegian Swimming Federation (NSF). It gave swimming in Rogaland, as well as in Norway as a whole, a real boost.
The North Sea Swim Meet has been arranged every year since the start in 1973 and has through these amazing years achieved the status of being one of the national swimming highlights.
The Rogaland Swimming District has together with the local community brought the North Sea Swim Meet up to the excellent standard that swimmers have learned to expect. As a result, the meet has achieved great popularity and status with both Norwegian and international swimmers. A great number of Norwegian, Nordic and international records have been set at the North Sea Swim Meet through the years, among them a world record and several IPC world records.
Among top international swimmers who have competed in Stavanger in the last few years we can mention, Jeanette Ottesen, Ida Lindsborg, Philip Heintz, Rikke Møller Pedersen, Pernille Blume, Julie Aglund Lauridsen, Sarah Louise Rung, Elena Krawzow, Pál Joensen, Ari-Pekka Liukkonen, Lukas Räuftlin, Christoph Meier, Marco Loughran, Sebastian Iwanov and of course several others from the Norwegian Swim Team.
We are looking forward to see you at The North Sea Swim Meet also this year, and hope you will enjoy your stay with us.
