Lynne completed four swims in the Arctic paying tribute to the great polar explorer Roald Amundsen, who was the first to traverse the Northwest Passage by boat in 1903 – 1906. The swims demonstrated the reach of human ability and continued Lynne’s contribution to scientific research. Water temperatures were below freezing. Her achievements included swims in Disko Bay – Greenland, Pond Inlet off Baffin Island – Canada, Prudhoe Bay – Alaska, and Barrow – Alaska.
