Nacho enjoyed himself immensely at the ECOS VII conference and field trip. He, Sven Stouge and Andrew Simpson formed the "ECOS swim team" and ploughed up and down the pool in the Hotel Sporting Trexante in Senorbi village, Sardinia. The pool was complete with an inflatable shark, rumoured to be there to make the Australians feel more at home.
