Pablo Fernández Álvarez swam about as fast as a swimmer can go in the ocean this past July off the Florida coast of Jupiter.
After swimming 100 km in 12 hours 21 minutes in a point-to-point solo swim in the Gulf Stream, Pablo Fernández Álvarez will attempt another unique Guinness World Record attempt tomorrow.
Tomorrow at 6 am, Fernández will enter the water off the dock of the King Harbor Yacht Club in Redondo Beach, California in leg shackles. He will attempt to swim 10 km along the WOWSA Ocean Fest marathon swim course.
Guided by kayaker Devon Clifford and escorted by the King Harbor Yacht Club Commodore Greg Ronkainen, the 10 km Guinness World Record attempt could take the Spanish entrepreneur up between 6-8 hours.
Event director Quinn Fitzgerald said, “Pablo is kicking off three days of open water swimming fun and challenge at the 2019 WOWSA Ocean Fest. He will be wearing Double Lock Leg Cuffs Ankle Handcuffs that are heavy duty tactical steel law enforcement grade.“
