Believe it or not, my plans for 2014 have changed yet again! This is because I cannot get a definitive answer from the Sardinia pilots about a date so I need to crack on.

This week I have had an offer to swim the Channel again, this time as part of a relay for Diabetes UK. This is exciting for me as it will give me a good Channel swim as part of a team. I am also first reserve for a round Jersey for 2014.

Last weekend Lizzie and I went to Jersey for the JLDSC dinner. It was a fantastic time and I was delighted to receive a commemorative polo shirt and plaque for my Jersey to France swim. I also caught up with Simon , Bill and mum.

I also managed to catch up with Mark Faure Walker, a Maidwell old boy who broke the record for the Jersey it France swim this year. Amazing that 2 of the 3 swimmers that completed this difficult swim this year have Maidwell Hall connections.

Off to America soon. Yippee!

Setting off. 7am. Only 13 and a half hours to go!
