10junBack to Swimming the English Channel  | Previous Next




In Less than 18 hours we will attempt to swim the English Channel!!! We start at 2.30am Saturday morning which has thrown me in to a total panic as was expecting to swim on Wednesday. Apparently though when it comes to swimming the channel if there is a good weather forecast you just drop everything, panic and go for it.

You can track the progress of the swim live here – http://www.channelswimmingassociation.com/tracking/ – our boat is Mary Jane

Many thanks if you have already sponsored me. It makes the many, many hours of training in freezing cold water feel worth it. It’s for a fantastic cause – AIM Education who work with kids that have fallen off track and are being excluded from school to help them get back on track. If you have enjoyed following the story of the training unfold you can still sponsor me here – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/coastbusters

We aren’t allowed to wear wetsuits so my biggest fear, apart from the general feel of panic, is now jelly fish. Oh and the odd oil tanker we might have to swim under. What could possibly go wrong…?
