From Jeff: Six Hours In

The latest report from the boat is that Adam is still swimming well,
keeping his stroke count up, and is keeping nutrition down.

  2. When you see the shore, dig down deep and find the sprinter in you. He'll help you get through it!

  6. Keep it up Adam (Jane says so too)! Honestly, this can't be as bad as finishing up the run on your ironman, right?...not that I've done either.

    I'd like some in-race color commentary from the race veterans (Will and Jeff)...why are you guys all swimming S curves to France? Tides, ships, ...?

  10. Steve,

    The curve is due to tide changes. Water height changes about 15 feet every 6 hours. Which is flushing the channel. The pilot is critical in making sure the swimmer is at certain points to benefit the changes. Stroke rates are very critical in making sure you get where you need to be. If you miss the change you are screwed and will be swimming alot more. My crossing was an arch and not an S. I have seen patterns that end up down the coast of france

  12. Mel-

    Still a ways to go. We don't have actual mileage. Trying to get that from the boat. This is the hard part because you can see France, but it doesn't seem to get any closer. He needs cheers more than ever now.
