Congrats Daniel Abel and team on a beautifully documented swim around Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.

Love Daniel's detailed narrative and the stunning video put together by his team; also a copy of the original 1985 Cook Islands local news report on the first two swims around Rarotonga (Dan was the first in the clockwise direction). Great stuff all around.

    The sheer chutzpah of undertaking this swim impresses the hell out of me.

    Rarotonga's largest sporting event is VakaEiva, a week long outrigger canoe festival. It is a big water race. Canoes over 40 feet long flood completely, they get thrown around by waves, currents will slow you to barely a crawl... Massive round of applause for this one.

    Frankly, the effortless eggbeater kick for feeds is causing great envy. :-) Kudos on a great swim with a great cause.
