When you are swimming in water temperatures below 41 degrees and pushing your body to it’s limit, you need a team of people with you to make sure you stay safe. The goal of this swim was a mile. It was stopped at just over 1100 meters and around 33 minutes, due to swimmer safety. The team consisted of a director, an observer, a doctor, and a swimmer second/caregiver. An official time was taken at the 1000 meter for good measure.
