Ein Mann des Meeres: André Wiersig erzählt sein Schwimmen durch die Ocean's Seven
Ein Mann des Meeres: André Wiersig erzählt sein Schwimmen durch die Ocean's Seven (English translation: A Man of the Sea: André Wiersig Tells of his Swimming through the Ocean's Seven) is an audio CD released in August 2020, co-produced by Erik Eggers, Klaus Sander, and André Wiersig about Wiersig's six-year journey to achieve the Oceans Seven.
It took André Wiersig six years to become the first German-speaking athlete to master the most physically and mentally demanding challenge of open water swimming: the Oceans Seven. In Ein Mann des Meeres, the German native of Paderborn tells of his adventures in the English Channel, in the Molokai Channel in Hawaii, the North Channel in Scotland, the Catalina Channel in California, the Tsugaru Channel in Japan, the Cook Strait in New Zealand, and the Strait of Gibraltar between Spain and Morocco. Wiersig explains his emotional near-death experiences, his painful encounters with venomous jellyfish and encounters with sea lions, flying fish, whales and sharks, and describes how his global journy moved him to become an ocean advocate.
