S.P. Murleedharan in the Palk Strait, photo by L. Balachandar
S.P. Murleedharan completed the Palk Strait between Talaimannar in Sri Lanka to Arichamunai at Danushkodi in India. Murleedharan avoided sea snakes in the 35 km (19nm) Palk Strait in his 13 hour 53 minute swim under the direction and escort of Commander G V K Unnithan. "As an Indian I feel proud to cross Palk Strait from Sri Lanka to India. The conditions were extremely tough for swimming. The sea, pleasant in the initial stage, turned very rough. It forced me to swim against the strong wind and choppy sea."
