Nothing in the open waters in and around South Africa is easy. From Robben Island to the Agulhas Current, from the Cape of Good Hope to False Bay, the challenges include cold water and sharks.

Today, Kerry Kopke of the Cape Long Distance Swimming Association reported that Ryan Stramrood became only the sixth individual to swim 34 km across False Bay from Miller’s Point to Rooi Els. Stramrood, known for his extreme swimming feats around the world, set a record in 8 hours 39 minutes. “We are exceptionally proud of this new record that is well deserved by Ryan. Well done to Ryan’s brilliant support team including world-class piloting by Derrick, Debbie and Dylan Fraser of Big Bay Events.”
