The Ocean's Seven - is the biggest challenge for an open water swimmer. By now only 13 person achieved it, but none was from Poland (for comparison more than 400 person have climbed The Seven Summits - seven highest peaks on each continent). The seven channels and straits: The English Channel, The Gibraltar Strait, The Catalina Channel, The North Channel, The Cook's Strait, The Tsugaru's Strait and Molokai Channel make the famous Ocean's Seven. I have successfully swum the first two of them.

Now it is time for another challenge. The Catalina Channel from the Catalina Island to the South Beaches of Los Angeles downtown. I have booked my swimming for 16th of October 2019. Besides the low temperatures, strong currents and strong winds, there are many more dangers waiting for me, such as various animals like whales, dolphins and sharks. I will have to challenged them at the distance of 21 miles by myself. Unfortunately the hardest thing for me is to get about 5000$, what is for a Polish lifeguard large sum to raise.
This price consists of:
$2,900 - The first nine hours of booking the piloting boat, that is swimming next to me. Each additional hour costs $175.
$75 - renting the kayak on which my supporter will be swimming (he is going to feed me, and navigate me)
$750 - The fees for Catalina Channel Swimming Federation (for an observer)
$1000 - The flight ticket from Poland to Los Angeles
$600 - accommodation in the vicinity of Los Angeles.
I am asking you for any financial help. Thanks to you I would be able to get closer to my biggest dream which is the Ocean's Seven
Thank you for any support.
