With the English Channel, Catalina Channel, North Channel, Strait of Gibraltar, Molokai Channel and Tsugaru Channel seasons over for 2012, the global Oceans Seven season heads into 2013 and the Cook Strait season soon.

Besides Stephen Redmond of Ireland who remains the only person to achieve this elusive goal, there are many who have completed a number of channels on the Oceans Seven list. This is the current list as of Kim Chambers’ lastest Molokai Channel swim last week (finish shown on left).

An Inspirational Cause… A Successful Event



SWIM ACROSS AMERICA, LONG BEACH
With the powerful cause of making waves to fight cancer, the inaugural Swim Across America Long Beach event was both inspirational and successful.

THE DRAMA OF THE SPORT
Before he came out of the water, Craig knew that a certain question had to be answered. It wasn’t a question about his middle name or anything like that. It was much more profound. It was a question posed by himself, a question that only he could answer for himself. When Craig was able to answer that question, Hank embraced him and congratulated him on finishing the 5K with dignity.
