About Ryan Stamrood's North Channel swim 2017

"Life is filled with certain obligations and responsibilities, but none more basic, primal or important than the responsibilities that we have to ourselves and each other"

The North Channel has played with many emotions over the years and Tuesday was no different. Ryan Stramrood made his call to take on his NC swim. There are always questions about the perfect day but there is equal stress for swimmers to make a decision or to risk the wait when flights are booked to leave and the wind we have been having this season.
Last min call and we were gone up the long 7 hr journey from SW to NE Ireland.

Remco Berendsen zwemt het IJsselmeer

2017-08-22 - Medemblik. Remco komt aan om 8 uur bij de Rolling Stone van Miloe in de Haven van Medemblik. Hij lijkt gespannen en heeft er zin in. we overleggen over wat hij nodig heeft onderweg aan informatie en over de voeding. Daarnaast besluiten we tegen de wind in te gaan omdat het maar zo weinig is. Remco wil ervaring opdoen in de golven. De golven zijn gezien de wind: 3 Bft en afnemend wel erg gering. Hij slaagt erg goed in het bereiken van het doel: Stavoren. Een constant slagtempo en een versnelling aan het einde voorspelt dat hij klaar is voor langere afstanden. Op naar de Haarlemmermeer ringvaart!

Met Irene en Miloe over het IJsselmeer

Op 12 augustus was de IJsselmeerzwemmarathon. Altijd het summum van Marathonzwemmen in Nederland. Helaas vaak de enige marathon op de wedstrijdkalender. Daar ik twee estafettes over het IJsselmeer had voor Zwemanalyse op de twee dagen na de marathon, leek het me goed om alvast "aan de overkant" te zijn op vrijdagavond. Ik had nog niet meegemaakt hoe het is om bij de schippers van de marathon te verzamelen de avond voor de grote wedstrijd.

Chloë McCardel On Her English Channel Four-Way

Chloë McCardel is undergoing her final preparations for an unprecedented four-way crossing of the English Channel (history's first solo quadruple Channel crossing).

If there is anyone who could do it in the contemporary swimming world, it is the 32-year-old McCardel who already has a career total of 21 English Channel crossings under her swim cap.

“When I completed the triple, I was utterly exhausted – nauseous and hypothermic, with my swimming costume hanging off me because I’d burnt through so much body fat.

Four-Way EC? No Way! Chloë Can

Chloë McCardel is about to attempt the unthinkable.

She has done one-way crossings of the English Channel. She has done two-way crossings of the English Channel. She has done a three-way crossing of the English Channel.

And now she will attempt a four-way crossing.

A successful non-stop four-way crossing (quadruple Channel crossing) would be unprecedented and would bring her career English Channel crossing total to 25.

History's First Current-Neutral 100-Mile Swim

A few days after Caroline Block attempted a two-way crossing of the North Channel, fighting gallantly for 28 hours 55 minutes, and the same day that Chloë McCardel announced her four-way 136 km English Channel crossing between August 29th and September 2nd, Sarah Thomas walked into calm water of Lake Champlain situation along the Canada-United States border.
