Christopher El Sharko Blakeslee...El Sharko, as he is know by his friends (because he swims in the breeding ground of the Great White Shark in Tomales Bay and thinks he is a shark)!...Sharko comes from a surfing,diving and lifeguarding background. He was inspired by fellow South End marathon swimmers, Kristine Buckley and Drew Downs after their successful English Channel swims. Sharko wondered if he could train for and swim the English Channel himself.In 2001 he succesfully swam the 10K Pier to Pier (Capitola to Santa Cruz)and decided to train for the English Channel. Some of his notable swims have been: First ever San Quinten to Alcatraz (Prisoner in my own mind swim); First ever swimming the legnth of Tomales Bay (breeding ground of the Great White Shark); 3 bay to breakers; 3 Pt Bonita to Aquatic Park; 11 Candlestick to Aquatic Park swims...and many others. On September 4th, 2004 El Sharko Swam the English Channel.
