Lovely short film about Maureen McCoy, author of Wild Swimming Ireland.

Sights set on elite company

Denmark local Steve Junk hopes to become the first Australian to complete the infamous Oceans Seven circuit when he attempts to complete the North Channel swim later this year.

The Oceans Seven comprises seven of the world’s major open-water channels and totals more than 200km in distance.

Mr Junk began open-water swimming in 1999 and in 2005 decided to swim the Strait of Gibraltar.

“I just did it because it was something on the map and I thought that sounds pretty cool to swim between Europe and Africa,” he said.

“So I just did it and then it’s gradually sort of taken over and I’ve done another one and then another one.”

Daughter's appeal to solve missing trophy mystery - 50 years on

Helen Kaye-Wyatt, whose father Philip Kaye died in January, has only just discovered that a trophy was named in his honour to commemorate him swimming the English Channel in 1966.

She is now desperate to find out what happened to the trophy, which at one time may have been stored in a cabinet at the now-demolished Huddersfield Sports Centre.

Helen, who lives at Rastrick, has spoken to managers with Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL), which runs Huddersfield Leisure Centre, but has so far drawn a blank.

Channel Tunnel Vision | We Spoke To Howard James About His Double Record-Breaking Channel Swim

"Get up. Swim. Eat pizza. Go to bed"

In 2016, driven by personal loss and a intrinsic need for a new water-bound challenge, endurance swimmer Howard James set out to achieve two new world records for the earliest and the latest English Channel swims. To complete them would place him among the greats of British open water swimmers and up the ante in the challenging arena of Channel swimming.

In an age where athletes make fortunes billboarding for marketeers and sports live streams are the new gladiator spectacle for thrill seeking screen-sloths the world of endurance swimming slips quietly by without recognition, its participants stoically paddling on in relative anonymity.

100x Cook Straight

Yesterday I completed the 100th swim across the Cook Strait in New Zealand. I would like to thank everyone who was there on the day, including Philip Rush and his team for their incredible support and guidance, and my coach Charmian Frend.

Jessi Harewicz Exploring the World's Oceans

Now I have to swim the English Channel

The world is covered by more ocean than land and there is an uncharted playground of water in British Columbia. So why not try something that is done less? You might discover more.

I was a synchronised swimmer as a teen, but I quit due to a combination of the teasing and my lack of success.

I am still a beginner in adventure swimming, but I can’t do much else right now. A couple of years ago I broke up with a long-time boyfriend and it led me to start training for a triathlon. I got back into the pool for the first time in 12 years. I did the Swim Trek boot camp and I failed so badly. I panicked, was violently sick and almost got hypothermia (in a wet suit!). But I only learned this by TRYING. Three weeks later I was swimming 10 hours down Indian Arm.

Just Add Water: Healing waters for marathon swimmer Robin Rose

In the wee hours of the morning, Robin Rose bares her skin to wind and water and plunges into long hours of salt-water swimming. She is part of a tightly knit community of ultra-distance ocean swimmers. They swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco as a training workout for greater spans like the Santa Barbara Channel, Molokai to Oahu and, of course, the English Channel.

Swimming ultramarathons in just a swim suit and cap, at the mercy of cold and currents, is part of their culture. What looks to most like a tortuous feat of physicality is to these swimmers a sanctuary of self-growth and healing.
