    Love the soundtrack DB! Very Fitting but feel I should be sipping a mint julep and eating foie gras!

    A French film crew were at the South End and Dolphin Club a couple of years ago and got some good footage...and sounds like a good story....

  • A fun part of Ice Mile training:
  • Full report of my Ice Mile swim at www.haydnwelch.co.uk. The above clip was just training but no room to swim in the ice covered Lake Bled, Slovenia. Having dived in I remembered I hadn't tied on my float or my mascot Deepest Bear, so went back for them. I then cut my face on the ice as I was swimming through it, so got out.

    From @bethfrench: merged from another new thread.

    I managed to slide in to an extended stay in Hawaii a swim across the Kaiwi- and got it filmed. I hope it serves to promote open water swimming.

    It shows up fine on my phone, but this reminds me it's good to include links in addition to the video embed. This is useful if, for instance, someone's browser is set to block flash.

    I've got no idea what mine blocks! Will see

    My dad just put together a short video of "highlights" of my MIMS swim last summer! I'll try to get some more of the video up when I go home this summer - pretty sure he has about 6 hours of riveting footage total:

  • Great video Abby! What a adventure for you and everyone on your team! You are a beautiful swimmer, a treat to see you power along leading the pack!

    Great fun, as long as you're not the one the NYPD is ordering out of the water...

    Entry for SCAR Swim 2014 coming soon. Here is a clip of the 2013 swims which had 12 Triple Crown swimmers participate. Not a bad early season warm up for channel swimmers.

  • "Crossing Hell's Mouth tells the story of Frank Chalmers, an open water swimmer who is setting off on the challenge of his life. Having successfully swum the English Channel, Frank has been training for over a year in preparation for his toughest swim yet; to cross the Pentland Firth."

  • Here's my English Channel swim from 2001. It was previously posted here, but the link got screwed up and Youtube whacked Part 2 for copyright. I claimed that the music was copyrighted, so I think I'm good.....for now.



    Part 2. There's no video or audio for the first 30 seconds. I don't know why.

    Highly suggest watching Chris's videos. Especially if you want to see the primo example of how to feed quickly.

    Shotgunning beers in college was great training for that. Who knew?

    Adam Walker successfully crossed the Cook Channel.
    He started 21th April around 09:00 h New Zealand time and finished in 8 hours 36 min the 6th and in his words hardest of the 7 Oceans.
    Now all that's left is the 'easier' North Channel between Scotland and Ireland to become the fifth person to complete the 7 oceans.
    They saw a shark but dolphins came to the rescue!
    Read more about it on his website and Twitter page.
