Peace Will Be Found On This River
111 miles. That’s the distance from London to Nottingham. The in-air distance between the airports in LA and San Diego. And, as the river flows, the distance from Princeton, California, to the capital city of Sacramento.
Jamie Patrick is going to swim those 111 miles, beginning on Friday August 19 at 12 noon. His journey down the Sacramento River will last somewhere around 32 hours, and will take him past bucolic farmlands, wasteful power plants, and plenty of unknown territory. His 11-man crew will be following him along the riverbanks in an RV, and will help to guide him, nourish him, and encourage him in their kayaks and by swimming alongside him.
Jamie is not driven by fame or fortune or one-upsmanship. He is merely an adventurer, who wants to know just how far we can go. And he revels in the unique togetherness that arises from tackling epic distances. In the summer of 2010, he swam across Lake Tahoe, twice. 44 miles of swimming, in around 25 hours. Very few people have ever swam 25 hours consecutively. With this newest adventure, Jamie is going to do it again.
Adventures of this proportion bring people together with a sense of awe, pride, and disbelief. The crew and spectators will wince through the difficult moments, and cheer during the moments of celebration. Best of all, the crew will be live-broadcasting Jamie’s swim so that you too can feel connected to this incredible feat.
As Jamie said to his team, “peace will be found on this river.” We hope you join us for the adventure.
