KEY WEST -- An 18-year-old Canadian swimmer has circled around the island of Key West in 4 hours, 11 minutes and 11 seconds.
Cameron McKnight of Waterloo, Ontario, was the first solo finisher Saturday in the 12.5-mile Florida Keys Community College Swim Around Key West. He was the race’s youngest solo entrant and is a collegiate swimmer at the University of Waterloo. He also won the men’s division.
Dale LeClair took top female honors. The 41-year-old from Boca Raton finished in 5:04:20.
Nearly 150 competitors, in divisions for solo swimmers and relay teams of two to six, followed a clockwise open-water route that circled the island and encompassed the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.
