Guy Cohen reports that Avishag Turek just completed the first-ever double length crossing of the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) – 41km in 14 hours, 54 minutes. Here is Avishag finishing on the north shore, where she started the previous night.

More exciting news: Guy Cohen and Eyal Schacher are in the process of forming a new association supporting Sea of Galilee swims: the Galilee Marathon Swimming Association. As part of this effort, they uncovered numerous additional historical Galilee swims. The full list is available at LongSwimsDB.
