Bay to welcome Korzekwa to Marathon Beach. Stewart was what happened so close to shore under the darkness of night

kayak and it ended up filling up with water so the rear boat
" The community itself is phenomenal. It is evident every time brought him aboard. At the same time that was happening,
we have anything to do with the Trackers that the community one of the dinghies with the solo swim official ipped over

so the lead boat had to rescue her and let the wind take the
dinghy. Because of the waves it was quite a challenge to get
Korzekwa and the team left the North Bay government dock her on board. "
on September 2, 2020 around 5:30 a.m. She started the swim

unpredictable and sometimes dangerous lake.
camera with photos chronicling the day.
As they were heading towards the Goose Islands, the winds
started to pick up. When Korzekwa reached Cross Point, the
wind was coming from all directions. It was so cold with the
wind and the rain blowing. She was fighting three to four foot
waves that were really hard on her shoulders. It died down for
a period but started up again.
The winds were strong enough to cause two dinghies and a
kayak, part of the otilla that had been guiding her since the
morning, to capsize, sending people into the cold dark water.
The waves were at times up to 10 feet and the winds were up to
65 kilometres an hour for the last two hours. These conditions
were not in the forecast and the storm came out of nowhere.
After 15 hours of swimming, the combination of powerful winds
and strong choppy waves ended Korzekwa's attempt to complete her swim of the lake. She was within two kilometres of
shore when the swim was called off.
Organizers Anne Taylor AP and Rick Taylor AP and the shore
crew, as well as a crowd on shore with some out of town people, waited at the beach. When the sun set, they could see the
boat lights but then the lights would disappear with the wind
and high waves. Geseron, captain of the lead boat, explained

Ending the swim was the right thing to do as it became a
safety issue. It could have easily been a tale of tragedy when
the swim suddenly turned into a rescue mission of the dinghies
and kayak.
Although orzekwa didn t finish the swim, as far as the organizers were concerned, she did finish.
" With the conditions that were thrown at me, it was certainly
international calibre. I was having ashbacks to the nglish
Channel between the high waves and the winds and the cold, "
said Korzekwa, who is considering tackling the lake again this
summer.
The lost dinghy was located the next day in the daylight down
the shoreline. A month later, a Good Samaritan, Nicole Simard,
found the lost camera. Anne Taylor was able to meet up with
Marilyn to get it back to her.
Proceeds from the swim will go from NADY to the Nipissing
Trackers to provide downhill skiing lessons to children with
disabilities. Donations to the swim can be made at www.nady.
