The CMO is a huge fan of Blue Oceans especially when swimming or surfing is involved. The CMO created a television show that focuses on one of the most difficult athletic feats on earth, crossing the English Channel by hand and foot, one stroke at a time. Fewer people have crossed the channel than have climbed Mt. Everest. Its 21 miles of cold water, unpredictable weather, strong currents, jellyfish, and other obstacles natural and man made create an environment that keeps most people out. No wetsuits allowed.
