Howard Warrington aims to become the first person to complete 150 Robben Island Crossings. A Robben Island Crossing of 7.5 km is swam between Robben Island and Blouberg, and is a challenge to even accomplished swimmers, mostly due to the cold water temperatures (average 13/14 degrees), challenging sea conditions and sea life. Howard swims all of them in a Speedo! On average a single crossing takes him 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete (closer to 3 hours in rough sea conditions). He is currently the record holder for the most crossings. On 23 May 2023, he completed his 145th crossing!

The Robben Island Crossing is the iconic and most popular swim to do in Cape Town, because of the historical and political significance of Robben Island which is a World Heritage Site.
