Channel Chasing for the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito

October 18, 2019

This Saturday, October 19th, six young athletes, the Channel Chasers, will attempt to break the Uneven Open Relay record and raise money for the Pardee Aquatics Center at the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito! They will be swimming 20.2 miles of the Catalina Channel OVERNIGHT. The current record of 7 hours and 4 minutes was set in 1985.

The Catalina Channel is known as one of the most grueling open-water routes in the world, due to cold water and strong, unpredictable currents. The Channel Chasers will begin the relay at 9:00pm. Swimmers are not allowed to wear wetsuits, just one porous suit and one swim cap! Good luck Channel Chasers from KSON! 

Listen to John and Tammy chat with 17 year old Drew and his 14 year old Revere who will both be swimming as Channel Chasers and raising money for the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito! They talk about their fears in doing this like, sharks, the cold, the dark, the current and more! So brave and for such a good cause!
