    Another reason for less popularity might be that the choice of the Ocean’s Seven is less obvious than the Seven Summits (which in turn also leave some choice). For example, St. Catalina is just one of many small islands, and has been chosen mainly due to the poplarity of a swimming event there, which in turn thrives on the large population of Los Angeles.

    Some of the more “convincing” straits passages would be Djibuti to Jemen, Oman to Iran, Korea to Japan, Australia to New Guinea, SIngapore to Sumatra, Alaska to Siberia, India to Sri Lanka, Fehmarn to Jutland. The Channel and Great Britain to Ireland certainly are top. The challange also could be defined as the shortest routes beteen continents or to major islands, whereas for situations with several straits with some smaller islands as stepstone, passage of the largest reasonable strait would be chosen.

    The number of seven challenges (in continents) is also not relevant for swimming.
