A Day in the Life of an Ocean Swimmer

  • McLaughlin Auditorium, Gould 35 Church Street Bethel, ME, 04217 United States (map)

Todd Siekman, has been an avid swimmer his whole life. He began long distance ocean swimming 4 years ago for two reasons: to support the Lifeflight foundation, and as a means of recovering from brain surgery.  He swims with 4 to 13 others, ranging from 13-69 years old, accompanied by up to 7 kayakers.  They typically swim from 1.5 miles up to 5.5 miles depending on the day, weather conditions and ability of the participants.
