Donaghadee Chunky Dunkers from Stephen Cousins on Vimeo.

As he ceremoniously poured water that he brought from Mexico City (his home base) and San Francisco (his cold-water training base) into the North Channel with the help of his new friends in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland called the Chunky Dunkers, Antonio Argüelles said the following, “Ocean, I come in peace and the only thing that I ask you is that you give me opportunity to get to the other side and finish my quest.”

Argüelles is in his waiting period for an attempt at the 21-mile North Channel.
