Ingemar Patiño Macarine notched another channel crossing in his native Philippines. He is swimming along at a new channel per month pace in preparation for his upcoming attempt to become the first Filipino to cross the English Channel.

Together with Frank Lacson and their crew Willy N Ram and Enrilyn Lee and escort pilot Jimmy Suntay of the Philippine Coast Guard, their duo completed a 11.62 km tandem swim in Subic Bay from Anvaya Cove, Province of Bataan to All Hands Beach Resort in 5 hours 17 minutes.

It was their second unprecedented swim in Subic Bay after their initial swim in 2016.
