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.

Look for more information on Debbie’s swim here.
