Blankenhorn connects continents with Gibraltar swim

The original article by Barry Punzal is posted (with pictures) on PresidioSports since Sunday, August 1, 2010

It’s the gateway to the Mediterranean; a passageway between two continents; an opening between two major bodies of water and one of the busiest shipping routes in the world.

When Santa Barbara waterman David “Chip” Blankenhorn was planning a family vacation to Spain, he thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to swim across the Strait of Gibraltar?”

Well, Blankenhorn has quite a story to tell about what he did during his summer vacation of 2010.

After visiting spectacular sights in Barcelona and Sevilla, the 40-year-old father of three traveled to Gibraltar to do the swim of a lifetime. On June 14, he swam from Tarifa on the Spanish shore across the strait to an area known as Lanchones on the Moroccan coast.

He completed the 17-kilometer crossing that separates Europe and Africa in 3 hours flat, the fastest time recorded this year.

On the shorter event, the US athletes clearly dominated the field, with Charles Peterson and Francis Crippen getting the first two positions in the men's race – Peterson got the gold in 2h05m13s1, while Crippen earned silver in 2h05m15s1.
