    Best wishes to Jane Loughnan today as she takes on a Big Swim across the Cook Strait in New Zealand.

    The Cook Strait is the body of water which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
    The total distance to swim varies according to the currents – is approx 16 nautical miles.

    Jane is swimming as part of a 3 person relay team and her progress can be followed here.

    She has been looking forward to this opportunity for a long time…., and was very excited to get the call yesterday that the swim was on!

    Good Luck Jane!

    Good luck Jane!



    All the best Jane! Looking forward to reading a report about your relay swim!

    Congratulations Jane, that is quite some achievement 🙂



    Thanks everyone! It was the most stunning day I could have wished for on the Cook Strait. We think we swam around 26km – the most direct route is 23.5km so we had a good line – and we took 5.42 – this was an hour over the individual record but we think we may have a relay record – we’re just waiting on confirmation. It still seems rather surreal!



    Congratulations Jane and your fellow team mates! So happy to hear you had an amazing day with amazing conditions. Keep us posted on the relay record – that would be super exciting! All the best for your recovery!
