Katie Blair, Edward “Ted” Lomicka, Chris Allshouse, Philip Rush, Keri-Anne Payne, David Carry, Jacques Sicot, Sandra Bergquist, Cameron Bellamy, Ross Edgley, Jacques Sicot, Molly Nance, and Kevin Pollman all have Sue Dyson as a friend and open water swim colleague in common.

Dyson, a native of New Jersey who moved to Saint Lucia as a job transfer, talks about the St. Lucia Channel Swim, a 33 km channel swim between Saint Lucia and Martinique.

As the only country in the world named after a woman, the volcanic island lies in the Caribbean conveniently located near other islands for channel swimmers looking for a warm-water challenge. Dyson talks about the following in today’s WOWSA Live episode:

* the first two-way crossing attempt by experience channel swimmer Katie Blair (Saint Lucia to Martinique and back to Saint Lucia)
* upcoming attempts by Edward “Ted” Lomicka and Chris Allshouse
* her initial observer and crew duties with Jacques Sicot on his stage circumnavigation swim of Saint Lucia [see below]
* working with Philip Rush and Kevin Pollman [see below]

* the future of the St. Lucia Channel Swim
