Thomas Pembroke of Australia gave it a valiant attempt across the Tsugaru Channel in northern Japan, but the constant winds and unrelenting waves were just too much today. He got out of the turbulent channel at 5:12 pm, 11 hours 12 minutes from the start on Honshu and 8 km from his intended goal in Hokkaido.

Videos and photos of his swim are posted at Channel Swim Japan.
