Ray Gandy and Elaine Howley‘s unprecedented 50-mile swim in Narragansett Bay, Massachusetts, U.S.A. on July 9-10 will be broadcast live online.

We have a goal of raising US$5000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My wife Donna was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in 1992. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society plays an active role in research, advocacy and information sharing regarding treatments and cures. I have personally chosen this organization to benefit from a portion of the proceeds from this swim that will start on July 9th.”

They expect to swim 25–30 hours in the unprecedented 50-mile swim – which means their crew will broadcast live several hours of live video from the waterm during their swim.

Live online tracking will be available throughout the swim. Friends, family and fans can access access live and recorded video streams from the event here.

Crew on Ray’s boat will broadcast live on the top of each hour for 10 minutes and Elaine’s crew to broadcast at the bottom of each hour for 10 minutes, a truly fantastic use of modern technology.

Course map is shown above.
