Round-Trip Angel Island - a video trilogy

by Evan Morrison. 09 March 2018.


Of the 11 documented, unassisted Round-Trip Angel Island swims to date, I’ve been fortunate to participate in three - two as observer and one as swimmer.

We managed to get decent video footage on all three - which I’m increasingly convinced is an essential component of the well-documented marathon swim.

The videos - less than 20 minutes in total - form a beautiful little trilogy, so I thought I’d put them here in one place. I produced these with iMovie on Mac OSX, which I’ve found to be the best combination of power and intuitive ease-of-use for the non-professional.
