inaugural edition

Inauguration day!

we swam fifty minutes yesterday, easily, with the sun on our backs despite the wind and cold.

we swim the Strait tomorrow at slack tide, around 17.30 Chilean time, two hours ahead of New York. all four of us will swim together, with two Armada boats and two Zodiacs accompanying.

the reporter colored his account dark, in my opinion, but there we are, shivering masochists, as he would have it!


  1. Best to you all tomorrow--please pass on good wishes from all of Scott's Team here in Seattle--Mark, Amy, Sonia, Bethany and Bonita---

  2. This is crazy stuff, wonderfully described. Agree on lack of luminosity in NY Times article.
