Beaches and sun! That must mean…we’re in Penang? That’s right – it’s the Penang APMG Cross Channel Swim!
Every year Penang hosts a swim across the perilous straits of Malacca – a whopping 6 kilometres of briny water filled with ships, junk and jellyfish!
So before you start, you need to get your head checked.
They’ll check the rest of you for free!
I jest – it’s not that crazy. I mean, there are people that come from all over the world to swim this channel!
There are dozens of us! Dozens!
I jest – it’s not that lonely. There’s usually a few hundred brave souls.
And a few thirsty ones that just can’t wait to jump in the water.
This is the day before the actual swim, mind you.
And now we move on to the actual Asia Pacific Masters Games (the aforementioned APMG)!
Really, just random shots of Penang.
