‘Pinoy Aquaman’ to cross 17km Canigao Channel

by | sports

Open water marathon swimmer and environmentalist Ingemar “Pinoy Aquaman” Macarine is all set to cross the 17-kilometer Canigao Channel on Saturday, November 20.

The 40-year-old lawyer and triathlete who hails from Surigao City will swim non-stop and unassisted from Lapinig Island, Carlos P. Garcia town in the province of Bohol going to Maasin City, Southern Leyte, reported Minda News.

Macarine reportedly hopes for a good weather this weekend so he can push through with the Canigao Channel swim.

Macarine, who recently swam the Gilutongan Channel in Cebu last September, is doing open water swims to promote cleaner seas, climate change awareness and environmental tourism as part of his lifetime advocacy, the report said, adding that the swim will be his 21st open water swim in the country.

According to Steven Munatones, founder of World Open Water Swimming Association, Ingemar is one of this year’s nominees for the World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year, said the news portal.

“This honors the men who best embody the spirit of open water swimming, possess the sense of adventure, tenacity and perseverance that open water swimmers are known for, and have most positively influenced the world of open water swimming in calendar year 2016,” he reportedly said.

The nominees include Roger Finch (South Africa), Seti Afoa (Samoa), Tomi Stefanovski (Macedonia), Edoardo Stochino (Italy), Ferry Weertman (Netherlands), Nejib Belhedi (Tunisia), Ger Kennedy (Ireland),  Alex Kostich (USA), Masayuki Moriya (Japan), Colin Hill (Great Britain), Ingemar Patiño Macarine (Philippines), Lewis Pugh (Great Britain) and Christof Wandratsch (Germany), the report said.

Last year, Pinoy Aquaman ranked third during last year WOWSA’s Man of the Year Award.

“To vote for the WOWSA Awards, visit: www.worldopenwaterswimmingassociation.com and online voting continues until December 31st 2016,” Munatones was quoted as saying by MindaNews.
