Hi there skimblers

I heard that polar bears can swim in one go up to 35km. I had a crazy tough how about if I tried to do the same and swim 35km.

Questions to you,
Do you have idea how much time would it take to swim distance?
Should I have any breaks for food or drink?
Is this realistic challenge?

Let me know what are your thoughts in comments

BTW i tough it could be nice to do this as a charitable event

Not only realistic but very doable, a lot of people do it every year... as a part of iron man triathlon.
