after 36 hours and 2 minutes he had established a world open water rec ord by swimming 144 12 miles The difficulty was that he was steadily being swept farther out to sea FEARS BEING SWEPT NORTH OF

month SHARKS ARE CHILDREN UNTIL THEY SEE BLOOD Chotteau redhaired and semi bald sounds reasonable enough un til he starts explaining why there is no reason to fear sharks From there on his ideas are strictly his own and should be construed only as such Sharks are just like he says They followed me most of the way last time but were more curi ous than anything else There is only one danger if blood shows In that case I would get out of the water in nothing Exclusive of the channel swim and Catalina and the Toronto swim there have been many unusual aquatic feats One of the more unusual was the paced record established by Otto Kemmerich in Berlin on a bet in 1928 Kemmerich wagered he could outlast a sea lion at continuous swimming in a pool The sea lion forced to keep on swimming as long as he was able collapsed after 42 hours Kemmer ich stayed in the pool for 46 Charles Zimmy a legless swim mer set the world endurance rec ord in 1931 when he swam for 100 hours in a Honolulu pool
