34kms in 17 hrs 34 mins – Congrats Jessi

Earlier this spring we shared the story of Jessi Harewicz (April 2017 story) who was training for a solo crossing of the English Channel this summer.

We are pleased to share the update that Jessi successfully completed her swim of the English Channel on Tuesday August 8th and covered the 34 kilometers in a time of 17 hours and 34 minutes.  Congrats Jessi!

Jessi shared “My feeding times were the fastest I have ever done! I believe a big part of this success was due to (my training at) UBC Aquatic Centre.”

Harewicz intends to train this winter for the Catalina Crossing (California) in summer 2018.
