The Crew

No ultra-marathon swim is possible without support – and the selflessness of a marathon swim crew is one of the most beautiful aspects of our sport.

I couldn’t be happier with the motley collection of folks supporting my Catalina swim. The sheer aquatic talent and marathon swimming experience on the Bottom Scratcher this Wednesday night will be something to behold! I’ll be in good hands.

  1. Someone better keep an eye in that washed-up Polo player. He looks a bit shady. Good lucky Evan – you got a few Fords on your side!

    1. John – He’ll be honored that you said so.

      Gords – Wish that were so… then maybe I could make some money off this crazy business 🙂

      Sully – Didn’t know you were a Friends fan.
