Lake Windermere

Lake Windermere

Well here I am a few days after my swim across the Channel.

I am still pretty worn out after battling the conditions for 14 hours. My mouth and throat are still pretty raw after taking in so much sea water during the swim. For the whole 14 hours the waves hit my right side and as I am a right side breather, I ate half the Channel.

My neck has pretty bad chafings as I did not put enough grease on before I jumped in. Sal, my top gun crew chief was telling me that I didn't have enough on. She was dead right and I am paying for it now!

Other than that, I am in top shape! Arms and shoulders are fine so that is a blessing.

I am planning my next challenge. The 44 miles around Jersey looks like my next swim.

Once again, many thanks for your support for the British Red Cross.

There are more photos on the way!

Rock on kids.
