All, I did it!!
I touched France at 22.30 on the 11th August 2015 after a 17 hour 8 minute swim from the UK. Exhausted but elated it was a triumph over mother-nature who wasn't kind with the tide or weather!
I'd like to say a big thank you to all at the Channel Swimmers and Pilots Association especially Freda Streeter and Nick Adams for all there advice and support. A special thanks goes to Paul Foreman, my safety boat pilot, who did an absolutely fantastic job on the day.
I will be fund raising until the end of the year for the Birmingham Children's Hospital and the Clock Tower Fund so if you could spare any small donations it all goes towards two great causes that do fantastic work! please see the link below:
Lastly, thanks for taking the time to read this post! I'm going to continue supporting these two great charities and I'm currently planning a swim around Manhatten Island, NY in 2017.
Many Thanks for all your support,
