On September 2, 2023 I completed the 16.4 mile designated route of Lake Zurich from Rapperswil to the City of Zurich. In a time of 13 hours and 10 minutes (ratification body Marathon Swimmer Federation). At the age of 72 years and 212 days old. I have completed six swims of the Stillwater Eight Challenge.
It was a challenging swim due to many passenger ferries causing swirls of water. At times I felt like I was swimming in an Endless Pool and not moving forward. For any swimmer to be successful it takes teamwork. My son Tom did an outstanding job as my crew. Martyn Webster from Switzerland was the official observer….he was amazing! I can’t thank him enough for his guidance and knowledge of Lake Zurich. The two boat pilots Dani and Alain did a fantastic job in keeping me safe around all boats and ferries. I want to thank my at-home crew my husband, daughter Sarah, and grandkids for always giving their love and support
