Antarctic Circle Ice Challenge

From Openwaterpedia

Antarctic Circle Ice Challenge was a series of unprecedented solo Ice Mile attempts by six South African ice swimmers south of the Antarctic Circle at 66.5622° South. It was a charity swim that supported two causes: SASSI or the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative and the SEAL Open Water Swimming Trust.

Conditions and Locations

Unpredictable weather conditions, strong currents, and lots of floating ice resulted in 6 open water swims in Neko Harbour (where Lynne Cox conducted the first Antarctica swim) and in Paradise Harbour at around 65° South.
