I first met Courtney and her husband Matt in Kinsale, Ireland during the 2015 Distance Week hosted by Ned Denison. Courtney had already achieved her Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming (English Channel, Catalina Channel, circumnavigation of Manhattan Island) and was eying even bigger swims. Earlier this summer she completed a double circumnavigation of Manhattan Island – 57 miles – in 20 hours 15 minutes and 55 seconds.
Tonight Courtney will walk into the waters off the mainland of California and swim out to Catalina (20 miles) before giving the island a good flip-turn and swimming back. 40 miles? Yes.
Track Courtney live! Cheer her on!
