When Rhinoceros And Open Water Swimming Mix

In Theodore Yach‘s autobiography, In My Element, he describes his Swimming For The Rhinos when he failed on his first attempt in 2011 when the water temperature dropped to 7.3°C (45°F) and succeeded on his second attempt of 11.4 km from Robben Island to Three Anchor Bay in 3 hours 33 minutes.

He ultimately raised R20,000 for the Save the Rhinos Foundation that works to conserve populations of critically endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia.
