The first team up on the blocks for the 2013 Tsugaru Channel season, Team Ocean-navi, set the wetsuit record for a single relay crossing during yesterday’s collective effort.
Coached by Masayuki Moriya of Tokyo’s Ocean-navi, the relay went more smoothly than expected between Honshu and Hokkaido in Japan. The team took nearly the straightest shot on record from their start on Kodomari Cape to their finish on Shirakami Misaki.
“It was incredible,” said coach Moriya. “The conditions were good. The team shot across the Tsugaru Channel like no other relay before. Everyone swam well and they all did a great job.”
