Madhu is safe and recovering from this latest adventure.
He came out of the water after 1 hour and 50 minutes of attempting to cross. What was supposed to be a 4 km swim, was over 9 kms by that point. Incredible! Strong winds kept him from the finish.
I don’t know what his path looked like, but I am looking forward to the details from Chile. Safety is #1 and he is safe. Stay tuned.
Here’s the exact info that has been relayed about the swim:
Water – 5-6C deg – will confirm exact later
Distance Across – 4.0 km
Distance Travelled – 9.18 km (tide pushed him sideways!)
Time – 1h 50min (incomplete)
He didn’t make it all the way across… but what a swim… in water that cold! What an adventure!
Well done, Madhu Nagaraja! I’m sure it’s disappointing… but all us LOSTies are very proud of your incredible swim!!! Lots of stories to come over coffee at Bean There!
