Team Tsukuyo was an all-female relay that successfully completed an English Channel two-way crossing between England and France.

The team took 22 hours to complete the double crossing, negative-splitting the 42-mile swim in 11 hours 7 minutes on the first leg and 10 hours 53 minutes on the second leg.

Its members (Etsuko, Hiroko, Noriko, Akiko, Masaki and Ayako coached by Tanaka) produced a beautifully cool hoodie commemorating their maraton swimming achievement of last year.
