...if he doesn't have them already; he seems to have the swimming part down pat

Do you know what distance he swam? That is pretty incredible ... no water, so sport drink, no food or gels ... Glad he and his workmate survived ... what happened to the third?

According to this update, they don't hold out much hope for the third as the water is pretty treacherous and that individual wasn't in the best of health.

There's a spot in the story that said the guy who was adrift for 30 hours was picked up about 8 km offshore. If that's roughly where this man started his swim toward shore, that would be pretty much 5 miles worth of swimming without the things you mentioned.
