latest Sport Track screen grab. Last marker indicates that andy has been in water for 6.5 hours and has done 26km…but the actual arrow is a bit further along. At center of image view the scale indicator which applies to all images. Also note the way points which are also new…somebody at sport track must be fiddling…



  1. the other way points are where Barend swam….no fiddling just interesting…Andy you are doing great and should KLAP this one !!! till later

  5. I see sportstrack gives your altitude as -19.4 m. It is impressive enough to do swim the channel on the surface, but to do it underwater…

    You going to make it no problem this time.

  9. Go Andrew Go. Ek is vrek besig by die werk maar het gou gekyk hoe gaan dit. Jy is ‘n ster ek sal nie eers deur ‘n swembad kan swem nie.

    Die crew op die boot moet net nie vries nie wie gaan dan na jou kyk.

    Sterkte en nogmaals baie geluk, om dit al halfpad te gemaak het is wonderlik.

    Liefde groete

    Yvonne en Louisa – Twenie

  12. Is sportstrack working? Mine seems stuck on 13H53. He might be there by now and I am still watching a screen that is an hour and a half old. I need to know when to crack open the bottle, otherwise I will just have to do it now.
