More than 4 days into their 400 km non-stop relay from Cyprus to Israel, Udi Erell, Doron Amosi, Ben Enosh, Ori Sela, Oded Rahav, and Luc Chetboun were each Walkerized for over 6 hours by a pod of dolphins en route from Cyprus to Israel.

The men are expected to land in Israel on Saturday and are typically hanging tough on their attempt to break the record for the longest 6-person open water relay record.

The team is attempting to extend the current Night Train Swimmers‘ relay record from 367 km (228 miles down the coast of California) to 400 km (248.5 miles). “We owe Vito Bialla for this [attempt]. The Night Train Swimmers inspired us; he helped us to focus and prepare.”
