Oceans Seven planning & logistics
Hey guys, a huge, long term goal I have is completing the Ocean's 7 Challenge. I'd also like to go after a few Canadian swimming records over the next 10 years. Lets be clear, as of right now I would be considered a beginner but I have a strong will and I am a naturally good swimmer (surprisingly, the longer the swim is.)
My question is 2 parts.
Firstly, I live in Canada and when thinking about which channel to do first, immediately my thought is the Catalina channel because I don't have to go outside of North America and logistically it might be the "easiest" to do. Am I fair in thinking that or would you recommend a different channel first?
Secondly, when planning these swims, is there a registration process? Who do you have to contact? I know some of the swims have a wait list and what not? I just don't know where to find information on the logistics of scheduling the swim and booking a crew.
ANY information would be greatly appreciated!
