Strait of Juan de Fuca attempt 2013

In July of 2013, Andrew (now a resident of Seattle) attempted to become the 8th person to cross the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Vancouver Island and the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. After 6 hours 10 minutes, the swim was ultimately called short due to adverse currents and water temperatures between 46 and 50 degrees F, but the planning process that went into it and media attention the event gathered was no small feat in its own. The swim was written up by Andrew along the way covering the challenges of planning a complex marathon swim from scratch. The write-up, along with other entertaining material, can be seen at Please tap on the glass.
