I spoke with Philip Rush this evening and storms continue near the South Island. My swim has been cancelled for Monday. My crew and I will be leaving New Zealand on Wednesday. Phil offered me a slot for 2014......I will be coming back to attempt Cook Strait. I would like to thank my crew for being so supportive. Also, many thanks to my family at home. Also a special thank you for all the wonderful emails and Facebook messages received from friends and co-workers.... it was very much appreciated. A special thank you to L.L Bean's for outfitting my crew and I with Gor-tex jackets.....we wore these jackets everyday. It kept us warm and dry during some very rainy days. My future plans in marathon swimming: North Channel late August 2013, Cook Strait in 2014, Molaki Channel at a later date.
