Swimming Through The Night On The Florida Straits

Angel Yanagihara prepared a 4-minute video from clips that she recorded during the night of Diana Nyad‘s last swim in the Florida Straits.

She recalls, “John Barlett‘s steady manner and calm bearing even under the worst of situations filled me with great confidence. It was an inspiration to see his resolve and increasing mastery of the swirling cauldron of currents that the Florida Straits can muster. Among the voices in the darkness, John‘s guidance and gentle encouraging manner beamed a light of strength that I cannot capture in words. He and John Berry led [the escort boat] Voyager with a firm and positive spirit.
