Standing at an angle, but swimming straight is often the case when a relay team takes to a channel swim.

As each relay swimmer prepares for their relay exchange, the rest of the team and crew often head over to one side of the escort boat to look and help out.

Ocean Crest was the escort boat of Eleven Feet, a 6-person relay team consisting of David Burke, Alison Cardwell, Adrian Poucher, Barry Patterson, Jacqueline Galway, and John McElroy who completed a North Channel relay crossing in 12 hours 52 minutes on July 5th.
