Anyone have the exact start/finish spots for Lynne Cox's 1988 Lake Baikal swim? I found some newspaper articles about it. The articles mention her swimming from one cape to another across the Angara river, which is the large river entering the southwestern side of Baikal over by the city of Irkutsk. But I cannot find where she actually started or stopped. Her personal site has an interactive map, but that doesn't show where exactly she swam. I don't think she is a member of the MSF, but maybe I missed her looking through the membership list. (I also emailed her booking agent to see if she'd pass the message on.)
