School For Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming

After reporting on Diana Nyad's upcoming swim from Cuba to Florida, we learned that Diana ('67) graduated from Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida which has long produced hundreds of great swimmers - and an amazing number of accomplished open water swimmers.

Triple Crown swimmers Scott Coleman ('72) and Dr. Scott Richards ('77), as well as Gail Rice ('74), have all swum the English Channel and other marathon swims.

Sometime this month, Richards' brother Dan Richards ('74) will also give the English Channel a go after completing the Catalina Channel in 2008. If Dan is successful, Scott and Dan will be the only the second set of siblings to have successfully crossed both the Catalina Channel and the English Channel (Lynne and David Cox were the first).

"I will have to get Dan to swim around Manhattan Island so we can be the only brothers to do the Triple Crown," said Scott on his way to Dover to help his brother.

We know there are some established institutions of greater learning in England where many channel swimmers have matriculated, but on stateside, Pine Crest School offers a great education, a great environment and have born some pretty incredible channel swimmers...

  2. We know there are some settled establishments of more prominent learning in England where numerous channel swimmers have registered, however on stateside, Pine Crest School offers an extraordinary instruction, an awesome situation and have conceived some really unfathomable channel swimmers.
