Golden Jubilee English Channel Relay Swim 2014
Members of the International Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team (SCMT) have made 46 English Channel solo crossings by September 2014 – the second most by any athletic organisation. To honour their teacher Sri Chinmoy’s 50 years of peace service to the world, 4 female members chose another English Channel self-transcendence adventure on September 17, 2014. At 12:42 p.m. they embarked on their 16 hour 34 min. long journey to France. With lots of inner and outer support again from around the world, Harita from New Zealand, Abhejali (several Zurich lakes, EC relay 2009, EC solo 2010, MIMS 2012, Gibraltar Straits 2013, ), Jayalata and Ritadyumna (EC relay 2009, breaststroker) from Czech Republic and their two enthusiastic and experienced helpers (Bahula from New York and Haribala from Zlin) were lucky to have the weather gods on their side again and enjoy a great time – before, after and even at times during the swim.
