Pinoy Aquaman ready to cross English Channel

PASAY CITY: While Ingemar “Pinoy Aquaman” Macarine is ready to set a new record by crossing the 21-mile English Channel this August, the issue concerning him before attempting the feat is the water temperature in the channel.

“Most of the endurance swimmers who tried the area gave up on the water temperature which is 15 degrees Celsius,” Minda News quoted Macarine as saying at the launch of the First Filipino English Channel Swim at Marriot Hotel Resorts World.

To prepare for this swim, the triathlete-lawyer will leave the country next week to start his acclimatization in London.

“My swimming coach told me to swim two hours everyday in cold water,” he further told Minda News.

The English Channel separates southern England from northern France, and joins the southern part of the North Sea on its east to the rest of the Atlantic Ocean on its west.

Macarine added that he will swim from England to France, then ride the boat back to England.

“Swims usually start at or near Shakespeare’s Cliff or Samphire Hoe (in between Folkestone and Dover), and aim to finish at or near Cap Gris Nez (between Boulogne and Calais),” according to the Channel Swimming Association’s (CSA) website.

“If mountain climbers have Mt. Everest, English Channel is considered the Mt. Everest for long-distance swimmers,” the endurance swimmer said.

“This is considered the ‘Mount Everest’ of open water swims and will be a test of physical and mental strength, courage, sheer human will and heart,” Georgian Honorary Consul Thelmo Cunanan Jr., founder of the First Filipino International Movement that is organizing the First Filipino English Channel Swim reportedly said.

Macarine admits some misgivings because “it’s too cold” there but the 40-year-old Surigaonon says he is determined to do it, the report said.

However, there are several open water swimming sceptics who are unsure about Macarine’s attempt at swimming the English Channel since he hails from a tropical country, according to the news portal.
