During this time the swimmer never came to the coast. On November 4 he finished in the city of Margate from where Ross Edzhli started on June 1. Photo: Marian F. Moratinos/Reuteers Record heat: the 33-year-old resident of Great Britain Ross Edzhli for the first time in the history has by swimming rounded Great Britain, BBC reports. He has overcome distance in 2879 kilometers in 157 days and for all this time never came to the coast. He has floated the last one and a half kilometers in the company of 300 other swimmers who have joined him to make the finish more spectacular and triumphal. Edzhli made the heat in a diving suit, without flippers and shovels for swimming. Daily he on average overcame 12 kilometers. The longest single heat has made 33,5 kilometers: on it at him 5 hours 25 minutes have left. In the Sea Edzhli there was not one: he was accompanied on a catamaran by the professional seaman Mathew Knight. According to Knight, inflows sometimes helped his friend to float with a speed more than 16 kilometers per hour is a cruiser speed of a dolphin. Edzhli was necessary to overcome cold currents and even several storm, but the most unpleasant, by his own recognition, there were burns of jellyfishes. Besides, from long stay in salty water at him language has swelled, and the heat has appeared under the threat of failure. In the special program of food developed for Edzhli, an important role was played by bananas. During the travel the swimmer has burned more than half a million calories. The great British heat as called the travel of Edzhli, became the most long in the world an organized sea heat. It is expected that soon the record will be recognized by the International association of swimming on open water. Earlier some thrill-seekers overcame waterway pieces, various on length, at the British coast, however nobody tried to float around all island. Having set foot on land, Ross Edzhli has said that he wasn't tired of swimming and is happy because he honestly worked and could expand idea of borders of human opportunities: "I hope that people will remember the Great British heat as an example or an experiment in the sphere of physical and mental endurance. When the captain Webb became the first person who has crossed English Channel all said to him that this suicide that waters are too dangerous there. But he has made it. And it isn't the heat — it has expanded borders of possible. I hope, people will remember that the hard work is almost always the answer, and the question almost always doesn't matter. It is possible in the different ways to make the Great British heat more simply, quicker or more effectively, but it is impossible to avoid only one: you should get into water, it will be cold and everywhere there will be jellyfishes. And it seems to me very honest: if you don't begin, you won't reach the finish". The name of Ross Edzhli already is in the Guinness Book of Records. In April, 2016 he in 19 hours has got on a rope on height of Everest. In two months before he has run a marathon, pulling along the car. And a year ago Edzhli has tried to float 40 kilometers between the islands of Martinique and Saint Lucia, dragging for himself a 45-kilogram log — the truth, has suffered
