Daniel Curtis started off his tour of Japan in the Namihaya Dome in Osaka. 13 days later he headed north to Aomori Prefecture to begin his brief acclimatization to the waters of the Tsugaru Channel.

Today, he completed this third Oceans Seven channel with a successful crossing of the Tsugaru Channel in 13 hours 39 minutes.

His coaches and crew Valerio Valli and Diarmuid Herlihy reported, “Daniel started very early on Honshu at 4:32 am with Captain Mizushima at the helm and arrived on Hokkaido at 6:11 pm. It was a sunny day, but very windy and choppy.”
