The World's First Swim Across the Red Sea

In October 2022, Lewis will swim from Saudi Arabia to Hurghada, Egypt. Along the way he will pass Sharm el-Sheikh, where world leaders will be gathering for COP27 in November.

The 160 km swim is expected to take 2 weeks to complete. Lewis will swim approximately 10 km each day.

He will not only be swimming over some of the most precious coral in the world, he will also be swimming across one of the world's busiest shipping lanes leading to the Suez Canal.

Pugh will be urging all nations to drastically cut their emissions, to tackle the climate crisis and protect the world’s oceans. He will also call for 30% of the world’s oceans to be protected by 2030.
