Tattumi supplied Oceanman race number tattoos for their inaugural Greece event held in the glorious Oitylo Bay on the 2nd July 2017 . This was a new location in the series calendar for 2017, reflecting the growing popularity of open water swimming and the success and growth of the Oceanman International sport franchise.
The tattoo race number packs were destined for 350 variously crazy, adventurous and fit swimmers attempting and competing in 2.5km, 5km (half Oceanman) or 7.5km (full Oceanman) distance open water sea swimming races.
Check out the promotional video for 2018 featuring footage from the 2017 event below, featuring none other than Tattumi’s fabulous temporary tattoos…(Swimming) caps off to the organisers for putting on what looked like an absolutely amazing event and experience, and for being a thoroughly nice bunch as well. The event is going from strength to strength for 2018, with spaces for 700 swimmers (double the amount of last year).
We were delighted to support Oceanman, and looking forward to producing race numbers for other events in the future…
Meanwhile Open and wild swimming has grown massively over the last few years – as a both a leisure and sport pursuit, with growing participation and new events springing up everywhere…There’s also the odd nutters like Sean Conway who swam the length of Britain in 2013.
If you’re interested in open swimming, you should check out the Oceanman series. The Outdoor Swimming Society is also a good source of information and local events are also worth keeping an eye out for. Get yer googles on!
