I'm planning on taking on a 72 year old record. In 1937, Orson Spencer set the record of swimming from Antelope Island to Black Rock in 3:40:52. For a course that is 8.2 miles that is roughly 26:57/mile. That's fast. But given the "float factor", I think it is within reach especially if there is no wind. So I'm going to plan to do this course on Monday, September 6th (Labor Day).
I'm still working on getting permission from Chris
