Debbie completes the Open Water Triple Crown
In September, Debbie completed the third leg of the Open Water Triple Crown. This is a remarkable achievement.
The Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming is a marathon swimming challenge consisting of three historically important swims:
- The English Channel, 33 km between France and England
- Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, a 48.5 km circumnavigation of Manhattan Island, New York City
- The Catalina Channel, 32.5 km between Catalina Island and the California mainland.
