Pacing The Swim Across The Sea Of Cortez

Pacing The Swim Across The Sea Of Cortez

As Paul Lundgren is finalizing his final preparations for his 76-mile swim across the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, the “weather looks great for his swim,” says pace swimmer Jamie Patrick.

I will be swimming one hour every three hours. That puts me in the water about 15 hours [assuming Paul is swimming up to 45 hours]. I am really looking forward to swimming at night in the Sea of Cortez. Exciting…

It is going to be hot. Satellite imagery has the ocean at 82°F (27.7°C) in the Sea of Cortez with air temperature close to 100°F (37.7°C). Wow
