Continuous stage swim
The continuous stage swim from Japan to California was conducted over five months.
Types of Stage Swims
A Continuous stage swim is different from a traditional Stage swim. In a traditional stage swim, the swimmer begins the swim on each day at the exact point where the swim on the previous day was finished. In a Continuous stage swim, the swimmer is allowed to float with the currents and tides and begins the swim on each day at whatever point the swimmer wishes.
The swim can be Assisted or Unassisted. If Assisted, the swimmer can wear or benefit from a wetsuit, protective swimwear, technical swimsuit, fins, paddles, wetsuit, shark cage or protective jellyfish cage. If Unassisted, the swimmer wears only traditional swimwear (as defined by the English Channel swimming community), goggles, ear plugs and one swim cap. In either Assisted or Unassisted swims, the stage swimmer can swim together with a pace swimmer.
