  • He made it in just under 18 hours. As far as I can understand there were unexpected tides meaning that he swam and swam without getting anywhere. The crew posted a 1 minute video of him and the relay team swimming with the shoreline just behind them but getting nowhere... Must have been frustrating. Anyways, he came up a few minutes ago! :)

    The final distance was 48 km but as you probably all know that means very little (haha) when the tides are unknown. However knowing Hans Henrik I can guarantee this was no easy task... :)
  • Well done Hans Henrik.
