Celebrating Anna Carin Nordin’s Feat Of The Oceans Seven

Escort pilot Brian Maherg, Irish Long Distance Swimming Association president Billy Wallace and Sheena Patterson celebrated the fulfillment of a promise made many years ago by Anna Carin Nordin (in pink on left).

The Swedish swimmer committed to crossing the North Channel and saw her Oceans Seven dream come through with help from her Irish friends this week. 14 hours 21 minutes she struggled from Scotland to Ireland, leaving the navigation in the hands of Maherg who guided her to history.

It was clear that there were several winners with her successful crossing: the many who played a role in Nordin‘s success.
