Sabrina Wiedmer: Northern Ireland - Isle of Man
As I write this, Sabrina Wiedmer, cold water marathon swimmer extraordinaire with antifreeze for blood, is undertaking a mindboggling attempt to be the first person to swim the appr. 57 kms (!!) between Northern Ireland (Ardglass) and the Isle of Man.
Here's her tracker page: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=01Mq3y6zzI4XQaCZEPLC7QRue91Z3kQiP
Mind you, that's very close to the North Channel, so cold, jellyfish, .... And she is already halfway, and to tell by the trackershe's keeping up a nice steady speed, very regular intervals between blips.
I can't believe the incredible attempts we're seeing this Summer: Sarah, Chloe, now Sabrina, wow!
