Cook Strait Swim, New Zealand

Stephen Redmond a man of courage.

After swimming thirteen hours in Japan's Tsugaru Strait, Stephen Redmond's second swim attempt was stopped due to strong currents pushing him off course. He was bidding to become the first person in history to swim the Oceans' Seven Challenge.   Stephen is a man of great courage and strength.  The agony of defeat dealt by Mother Nature is felt by all.   However, with Stephen's great determination, he will return and become victorious.  As of this morning, no announcement has been made of his plans for his next attempt.

How far did he get?

During Steve's second attempt, he was making progress in the first three hours. After the 4th hour, currents pushed him backwards and sideways. He was a few miles from the start. After the 10th hour, very strong currents pushed him back to a few miles from the starting point again. He valiantly continued to swim. By the 13th hour, he was only a few miles from the start.
