Udupi: To raise awareness on the activity of swimming, 41 swimmers from the Kadekaru Swimming Club swam across the sea between St Mary’s island and Malpe beach under the leadership of senior swimmer Gangadhar G.

The swimmers, who were divided into four teams, left the island at 7:10 am and crossed the 3.8 kilometres of the sea to reach the beach at 9:45 am.
