11jun1Back to Swimming the English Channel  | Previous Next




So the Coast Busters English Channel relay attempt officially started at 3.57am, weather is pretty good, sea a bit colder than we would have liked at 14 degrees but should be ok, maybe famous last words….

Obviously being the slowest swimmer I am the last of the six to do my hour which will start at 8.57am.

Went to a pub in Dover for dinner and carb loading last night. Everyone who has swam the channel gets to write their name on the wall there…hopefully will be back there tonight for last orders and a bit of graffiti.

You can track our progress here http://www.channelswimmingassociation.com/tracking/ and see how much we slow down at 9.00am…

Would be great if you could sponsor us now – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/coastbusters whilst it’s still just a channel attempt, just in case it doesn’t turn into a crossing and I cannot be a graffiti artist…

Thanks again for all the sponsorship and good luck wishes – really, really appreciated!
