Challenge 5.21 - successful Channel Relay Swim - 1st Sept 2012

Report by Stuart Gleeson.
 
A cool night. Met the team at Dover Marina: safety briefing, introductions - crewman Garry Clarke, CSA Observer Sam Jones. Off to Samphire Hoe. At 0110 the swim started, all the girls are happy with the stereo filling the night air with music. Sea like glass, no wind but some rain.
 
Good quick swimming from the team: into the Sou'West lane in 2hours (0310) & into the North East Lane at 0630. Some sea sickness but they coped well & kept each other motivated.
 
Alice, Amy, Poppy, Isabelle & Josephine propelled themselves across the Channel in an amazing time of 10hours & 50 minutes landing at Point du Riden at midday.
 
A great trip, lovely to see you all make light work of the Dover Stait. Well done.
