Connecticut Trio Makes It Five-for-Five In 13:45

The prolific American three-man relay team of Chris Kraus, Brian Ross, and Rick Gaenzle successfully crossed the Tsugaru Channel last week and the Molokai Channel today, finishing on Oahu in 13 hours 45 minutes.

The crossing in very windy and choppy conditions was their fifth Oceans Seven channel swim – in five attempts.

The trio has now completed the Molokai Channel, the English Channel, the North Channel, the Tsugaru Channel, and the Strait of Gibraltar.
