Susanne Masters profiles 5 great Intercontintental Swims.

"Traversing the world under your own power now includes swimming as more people swim between continents. Racing from Asia to Europe across the Bosphorus in Istanbul is one of the most popular swimming events, but it is not the only place where people swim between continents. Distances range from centimetres to kilometres, but can be made longer by currents, require more nerve in sharky places and more endurance in cold waters. Intercontinental swims are a challenge and an adventure to look forwards to that is within reach of a range of swimming abilities."
