Rachel Golub, Patricia Sener and Cristian Vergara will attempt to swim across the Beagle Channel between Chile to Argentina tomorrow.

Under the watchful assistance of an armada of Chilean and Argentine safety personnel, but under the constant threat of the williwaw during their 3-mile challenge, the pride of the Coney Island Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers (CIBBOWS) will be swimming in frigid 38°F (4°C) water.

Details of the intrepid trio’s experiences can be found here.
