Patrick Fellows was a young competitive swimmer who then became an endurance athlete, triathlon, race director and entrepreneur.

His 31.8-mile, 9-hour swim along the Mississippi coastline in the Gulf of Mexico was a charity swim for Rocket Kids that kicked off a number of sports events for children in an area around Baton Rouge, Louisiana that was previously devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

He explains more in greater detail about his solo swim in Underwater Audio‘s Immerse interview here.
