Md. Man Swims 5 Hours To Save His Family After Their Boat Capsized

Give this guy a medal.  I suspect he didn't do much training for the five hour swim either.

That is pretty amazing. I'm thinking I could do it in 4 hours though....

I have to admit, the first thought I had was "I wonder how far he had to swim" so I could calculate his pace.

The ST thread says 3 miles. Which makes it sound like "not such an awesome feat" until you consider that this guy is likely NOT a trained swimmer, in ocean currents and waves, at night, no goggles, fully clothed (though he smartly ditched his shoes), no marked course...

5 hours?  That's like 1500M for me.

Pretty cool!  One of these days my talents might come in handy....

I decided a long time ago if I ever ejected over water and could SEE land there was no way I was staying put...I was going to swim for shore!

Without goggles I might have been toast.
