Le 14 Milles de Paspébiac

Le 14 Milles de Paspébiac (also known as La Traversée Grande-Anse à Paspébiac or La Traversée de la Baie des Chaleurs) was an invitation-only professional marathon swim race across the Chaleur Bay, Canada. The swim followed a 14 statute mile (22.5 km) route from Grande Anse, New Brunswick to Paspébiac, Quebec. Organized from the late 1970s through mid-1980s, it was considered one of the more challenging stops on the World Professional Marathon Swimmers Federation circuit, due to cold water (occasionally in the low-50s F) and rough conditions. Cindy Nicholas and Jon Erikson completed two-way crossings in 1978.
