A Stroke Of Success
Cameron Makes Waves With Historic Swim
Cameron Bellamy has written his name in the history books and he has done it with a splash – literally. This endurance athlete recently became the first person to swim from Barbados to St. Lucia, a brutal feat encompassing 100 miles over 3 days and 2 nights – the longest open channel swim in history. Wow!
Setting off from the shoreline of St. Peter’s Bay resort on the morning of Friday, September 13, he swam continuously accompanied only by a small support boat and crew.
He arrived in St. Lucia on the evening of Sunday, September 15. His total time in the water close to 57 hours.
Did we mention he did it all for charity?
Cameron’s endeavour was to raise funds for United Through Sport, a UK registered charity committed to using sport as a tool to aid disadvantaged and vulnerable youth.
This was only the latest accomplishment for Cameron, as he has also set two Guinness World Records for his row across the Indian Ocean and his completion of a solo cycling effort traveling over 4,000 miles.
