The 2nd Ocean Walker Catalina Channel challenge starts on the 21st of May 2021 and ends on the 7th July 2021 (48 days). The route is just over 33km long between Santa Catalina Island and Los Angeles. Adam Walker completed the swim in 12hrs and 15 minutes on the 16 Oct 2012. Everyone who completes the challenge will be entered into our Zoggs prize draw to win some fantastic goodies, including a signed copy of Adam’s autobiography. We’ve also got several pairs of “Ocean Walker” Goggles, designed by Zoggs with the help of Adam to be the perfect goggle for endurance swimming in all environments to give away. To take part simply join the challenge ready for the 21st May and make sure you connect your SWIMTAG account to Zoggs on the settings page or Linked Accounts page for mobile site or app users. Swims can be uploaded using a SWIMTAG system at your local pool, using an Apple Watch, a Garmin swim watch or manually using the swimtag website. Good luck!“Santa Catalina Island lies off the coast of Long Beach, CA and is one of the Californian Channel Islands. Although only 4,000 people live there, it has around a million tourists visiting each year. The seas around Santa Catalina are full of incredible marine life. Fishing, diving, snorkeling and glass-bottomed boat tours are among the most popular activities. The Strait between the island and the mainland USA is just over 20 miles (33km). This swim starts at Blue Cove Bay, by Two Harbors Beach and finishes next to Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro, CA.
