tony-01We attended the official launch of Toni Enderli's Oceans 7 project last night. NSRI's WaterWise Academy is one of the three beneficiaries of this challenge that will span three years with the aim of raising R500 000 and teaching 50 000 children water safety.In Toni's words: 'I began open water swimming in 2009. The freedom, connection with nature and pure challenge associated with it had me right from the start – I was hooked. Open water swimming has taught me that it does not matter how old or young you are, nothing is impossible and whatever you put your mind to, you can achieve.In 2017 I will attempt to successfully complete the Catalina channel swim, situated off the coast of California in the USA. Following this challenge, I will face the Molokai Channel off the Island of Hawaii. In 2018 I will attempt Cook Strait situated between the North and South Islands of New Zealand followed by Tsugaru Strait between Honshu and Hokkaido of Northern Japan. The Tsugaru Strait connects the Sea of Japan with the Pacific Ocean.In 2019, the final leg, I will face the North Channel which is the strait between North East Ireland and South West Scotland. No matter what you have gone through in your life or what you are currently going through – you have the opportunity to grow from it. Reflection is the key to never making the same mistake again. These words have helped me get through my toughest times. I will live by them for the next 5 years.'Follow Toni's progress on our website and in our Sea Rescue magazine.img_5205 Andrew Ingram, Toni and Krista Lazzari
