Back on August 13th, Jim Dreyer, the Executive Director of the Mighty Mac Swim, reported on a mid-lake, cross-state relay crossing of Lake Michigan in 20 hours 50 minutes.

A team of six swimmers left Two Rivers in the state of Wisconsin on August 11th and finished at Big Sable Point in Michigan across the fifth largest lake in the world after swimming 91.3 km. They posted a video of their accomplishment.

Dreyer greeted the team at the finish, “Nick Hobson, Jon Ornée, Dave Ornée, Jeremy Sall, Matt Smith, and Todd Suttor of the Epic Swim 2020 team knocked it out of the park, swimming over 50 miles in a relay across the heart of this freshwater sea. They were fast, it was a swim for the ages, and they made memories to last a lifetime.”
