Some swimmers are inevitably linked to certain swims:

* Lynne Cox, Bering Strait
* Bill Welzien, Swim Around Key West
* Kevin Murphy, English Channel
* Alison Streeter, English Channel
* Lucky Meisenheimer, Lake Cane
* Mike Arbuthnot, Midmar Mile
* Philip Rush, Cook Strait
* Steven Hurwitz & Gary Emich, Alcatraz Island
* Kristian Rutford, Manhattan Island
* Frank Flowers, Flowers Sea Swim

Gradually and quietly, Charlotte Brynn is inevitably linked to Lake Memphremagog, a lake nestled between Vermont (USA) and Quebec (Canada).

After her most recent 25-mile, 13 hour 28 minute crossing of Lake Memphremagog [crewed by Cynthia Needham and Phil White], Brynn’s track record in the lake is long and varied [see below]. As Director of the Swimming Hole in Stowe, Vermont, she is never too far away from Lake Memphremagog unless she is attempting crossings of far-away channels and lakes – even in winter when she serves on the Organizing Committee of the Memphremagog Winter Swim Festival.
