I think it took him about 10 hours. He rented a boat and had his son's switch off paddling next to him on a surfboard. He did it non stop without boarding the boat and with no flotation device.Originally posted by kook
damn! For FUN?! How long did it take him? He do it w/o a floatation device and without boarding any vessel throughout the whole ordeal? Did he train for it?
FWIW, I do not plan on training at all, above and beyond my standard routine (3x/week cardio, 2x/week lifting).
He was a competitive swimmer that actually was selected for the olympic team when he was younger. He was in his early 40's when he did the Catalina swim. He has also swam around Alcatraz Island. Impressive, but IMO crazzy!!
