Lynne Sets Record

for Coldest Swim

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.
