Swimming tonight!

Looks like we have a clear window for an 8pm start tonight from Niagara-on-the-Lake! Nervous, excited, humbled by the support of an incredible crew, friends, family, and so many of the extraordinary people who have built this remarkable legacy of Great Lakes swimming, starting with Marilyn Bell’s pioneering swim.

I’ll try to do justice to that legacy!

We should have live satellite tracking, so if you’d like to follow along, here’s the link:

  1. Congratulations on your wonderful swim Loren. Fantastic effort. My wife and I did a Tim Horton’s run for your crew about 9:00 am this morning as you approached Toronto. Coffee, donuts and muffins for your support crew one of whom claimed it was the best TH drive-through he’d ever seen. Glad to be a small part of your swim and watch you progress so well. Shaun is the one of the very best swim masters! Good luck on the recovery. …Tony Chisholm.


    1. This is awesome! I saw your arrival with much-needed Tims supplies!! Shaun was incredible as swim master and was also a vital part of the team on the water. Thanks so much for being a part of the adventure!
