Swim reconfirmed!

The thick sea mist that cancelled my swim yesterday has lifted and today I received a message from the Leme to Pontal Swimming Association reconfirming my swim for tomorrow morning (starting at 3:00 am Irish time). All of the details that I gave in my original post announcing the start are still valid, apart from the 24-hour delay, obviously… Let’s go!!!

24-hour delay…

 

A 2-person relay team called Dragão do Mar from the Northeast of Brazil had just begun their Leme to Pontal swim last night when unforeseen thick fog set in. Unfortunately, this meant that their swim had to be aborted for safety reasons. They will try again tonight, i.e. in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Thankfully, Monday still looks swimmable, so my swim should only be postponed by 24 hours. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for confirmation…
