Palk Straight (India to Sri Lanka)
Hi, just in case anyone had dreams of doing this (it has been mentioned many years ago), I have had to turn down a slot for it this March as after my EC swim, I need a break. The swim is now full for this year, but there are possibilities for 2021. As far as I am aware , it has only been swum by a handful of people from India and Sri Lanka, is about 17 miles and warm/clear. There are strong possibilities of being the first across for your continent (unless you are Asian).
I have contact details for the chap who organises this from the Indian side (being India there is a lot of bureaucracy to go through which he can negotiate and sort out).
Let me know if this is of interest.
