Ray Gandy, Nominee For World Open Water Swimming Performance Of The Year

Ray Gandy‘s 50-mile charity swim in Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, USA for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society ran into the stark, cold, rough reality of Mother Nature.

Smooth conditions turned to rough, day turned into night, comfortable turned to cold.

Typical for marathon swimmers who expect the unexpected. With an aim of 50 miles, Ray made it to the 45.5-mile mark before his crew pulled him due to safety considerations. With the goal to raise money for others, his two-day-in-the-bay effort was a success and is nominated as the World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.
