INGEMAR Macarine completed his 20th successful open-water swim when he and his partner Frank Lacson conquered the 10.38-kilometer stretch of Subic Bay yesterday.

The calm seas helped Macarine and Lacson as they made their way though  the waters of Subic Bay with ease when they started their swim around 6 a.m.

According to Macarine, the sea was perfect unlike his previous swims, where the sea was rough. But he said he and Lacson still had difficulties because they were swimming against the current.  Still, they managed to finish their task in a faster time.

They completed their swim from Grande Island in Bataan to Barrio Barreto in Olongapo City in Zambales in three hours and 47 minutes.

It was actually a double celebration for Macarine yesterday as  it was also his son’s birthday.

This open-water swim of Macarine and Lacson was for a charitable cause. It was done for the benefit of the Bicycle Friendly Philippines, a group that helps families that lost loved ones due to cycling accidents.

The swim also served as part of Macarine’s preparations for his attempt to conquer the English Channel from London to France, spanning a distance of 35 km, this August.
