Team Challenge 3:  Oceans Seven Swim Challenge

29th March - 17th May 2021

For our latest club challenge, we’re adding up how far our members swim over the next few weeks, with the aim of covering the same distance as the Oceans Seven challenge. This is a marathon open water swimming challenge that only nineteen swimmers have completed. It was devised in 2008 as the swimming equivalent of the Seven Summits mountaineering challenge.

The swims are:

  1. English Channel - 21 miles

  2. North Channel - 21 miles between Scotland and Ireland

  3. Straight of Gibralter - 10 miles between Spain and Morocco

  4. Tsugaru Strait - 12 miles between the Japanese islands of Honshu and Hokkaido

  5. Cook Strait -16 miles between New Zealand’s North and South Islands

  6. Moloka’i Channel - 27 miles between the Hawaii islands of Moloka’i and O’ahu

  7. Catalina Channel - 20 miles between Santa Catalina Island and Los Angeles
