Remaining one of the most inspiring stories in Croatia, Domagoj Jakopović Ribafish has completed his goal of connecting all of the 50 Croatian inhabited islands by swimming. Dedicated to the memory of his late son, Rok, it took one year longer than expected, due to the epidemic, but today Ribafish shared on his Facebook page that the swim is completed. The final, 50th Croatian inhabited island (if you’re starting from the southern tip of Croatia, which is how Domagoj did it) was reached today, and Unije has the honour of being the final destination on the last leg of the project.

In this third (active) year of the project, about thirty swimmers swam along Ribafish, boats and dolphins accompanied them at sea, and more than 1600 children and so many adults welcomed the crew of Rokotok to the islands.

It is the common desire of Ribafish to talk to the gathered children about the importance of the preservation of the sea and land, flora and fauna and to encourage them to spend more time with each other and with their parents. He motivated them all to clean the beaches together, and spiced up the time spent with the children by hiding some geocaches.

In the third phase of the realization of the project, everything went well and each goal was achieved. As far as unplanned (and unpleasant) challenges go, the only ones worth mentioning are a very unpleasant wasp sting on Ilovik and a broken flip-flop on Olib.

So, one more stage remains: tomorrow, on Tuesday the 26th of July, Ribafish will swim from the Košljun islet to Punta on the island of Krk, where a big party is planned with numerous children and adults at 6 pm tomorrow night. The completion of this astonishing project will be celebrated, so if you’re around, don’t miss that event!
