If you get a chance could you bring back some duty free. Something like Audrey Tautou will do. Thanks.

was looking at the map earlier and thought: that 'Spirit of Britain' must be with a very quck swimmer.
Now I see my mistake.

Great news so far   Cannot imagine doing this....eek!

Crossing the second shipping lane now, roughly halfway although that doesn't mean too much as there's tides involved, they won't be swimming straight etc (click on Hist on the link to see how snaking their route has been so far).

 

Roughly halfway between England and France now though. Conditions are apparently like a washing mchine, Caz just out of her third leg

I was just about to ask whether anyone has pressed the "show track" icon. In distance terms they have already swum the width of the Straits of Dover, and they are approximately half way there.

Mega good luck to them/ to you all. Conditions like a washing machine? Doesn't sound good. I can't imagine that it's appealling having to go back in the water for your second, third, or fourth stint. It must be mentally gruelling not having any distance references either. I've got major league respect to anyone who gives this challenge a serious go, and Caz is serious.

Looks like the tide's turning again - I'm guessing that's what's leading to the dramatic changes in direction.

Come on Caz!!!

Me & mrs P have been following all day, can you tell Caz were rooting for her please Bear?
