Ireland's marathon swimmer Steven Redmond has been given a second chance to swim Tsugaru Strait today. The weather forecast is good for the beginning of his swim but then it worsens. If the Japanese Coast Guard and the Tsugaru Strait Swim Association official decide that winds are treacherous, the swim is stopped. Safety is the number one concern for swimmer and crew. I'm sending positive thoughts to Japan for calm conditions. I want Steve to become the first person in history to complete the epic Oceans' Seven Challenge. And, now it's nail biting time for everyone tracking his progress. Go Steve!
