Myself and the rest of ‘Team Squid’ successfully swam across the English Channel in a time of exactly 13 hours. In doing so we raised over £15,000 for the charity Aspire. I would like to thank all BWW members and my colleagues for their support and generous donations, it was a wonderful experience and one I will never forget!
I started at 4.13am in the dark (very surreal) and reached France at 5.13pm to a big cheer and amazing feeling of elation and sense of achievement. We had dodged jelly fish and tankers to make it in a time we are extremely pleased with.
We are now officially ‘Channel Swimmers’!
If you are training for a specific event or challenge, please let us know and BWW will be proud to support you!
