Swimmer from Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team swims England's longest lake.

July 5th, 2004: Karteek Clark from Edinburgh swam the length of England's longest lake - the 10.5 mile Lake Windermere.

Karteek began his swim at the northern end of the lake at a jetty by the youth hostel. After meditating inside the hostel and preparing all his food and drink for the epic trip, Karteek plunged into the cool waters of the lake at about 08:40, and emerged some 5 hours 18 minutes later looking remarkably fresh!
