On September 1, 2013, the second USA English Channel Relay team left the shores of Dover, England and made it to France 11 hours and 22 minutes later. Wind and swells varied significantly, but the water temperature remained a fairly consistent 60 degrees. This is the second USA relay team to participate. Both teams consisted of faculty, students and alumni. This team included faculty members, Dr. Rob Stanborough and Dr. Amanda Grant; current student, Meredith Hermeston; and Erica Cromwell, Jennifer Jenkins and Joshua Stoufflet, alumni. The first team completed their swim in 2009.
