The second person to swim was Hoshika Yasuyuki. He swam for 30 minutes. 第二泳者は星加康之選手です。 星加選手は３０分泳ぎます。
It’s so different to swimming in a pool. Yeah, the waves were pretty big. You’re fighting against the waves, which takes a lot of energy. Halfway through, I thought about giving up.
There are waves coming on an angle so it pushes you closer to the boat, but you try and keep away from the boat cause you don’t want to go under here and get caught in the propellers. So, yeah, it’s hard work. Fun, though. The sun’s out, the wind’s died down, it’s all good. Yeah. 波の角度で船側に押されたので、船から離れるように泳ぎました。プロペラに巻き込まれたくないですからね。 結構キツイですよ。楽しいですけどね。 太陽が出て風も収まってきました。全て順調です。
I swam last year as well. And last year it was really tough. This time it felt really good. Yeah, I really enjoyed the swim.
