I don't wear a wetsuit; it gives the ocean a sporting chance.
FYI: the only US canal in which swimming is explicitly or implicitly prohibited by 33CFR207 or 33CFR162 (or the rest of 33CFR that I searched) is the Cape Cod Canal. However, I've heard that USACE may frown at your attempt to swim through them. Swim report to follow this summer.

Who did you contact at the USACE @Leonard_Jansen?
No doesn't count.
Only the canal distance is what I'm after. That's what makes this 21 km interesting.
No currents in a canal!
Also the late start at 15:00 h on September 6, with sunset around 20:00 h
Hmmmm we may need to plan this out! Maybe even as a relay for the first year to test the waters out and for the affordability factor?
We're all just carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams
