I particularly liked the typo where the Sea Satin became the Sea Satan.

wonderful article Nic - I shall try to capture parts of it in my memory to use as a spur in my own training whenever I'm feeling weak.

Your mental tenacity is astonishing. I have tears of pride in my eyes. Having swum/bike/run under my own steam for up to 16 hours I can relate a little, but being in the water for that long is totally beyond my understanding. I could never even begin to contemplate such a feat. You are amazing!

Truly inspiring Dr Nic. Makes my worries about training for the GNR fail into insignificance.

Where's my trainers ... am gonna get out there now!

Dr Nic.....what can I say........except it is a tad embarassing to be wiping tears from my eyes at work whilst I am pretending to be working at the computer!!!!

Truly amazing and thoroughly brilliant :o)

It was always my childhood dream too.....but not sure i have what it takes like u obviously have!!!!!

I was jumpimg up and down with excitment on the day that you did it.

Your decription of how it felt at the end and that sense of privacy and "aloneness" that you experienced as you walked up the beach was very affecting.

Read the article, fantastic effort. Was most impressed that she swam the whole distance in one go, no breaks or low point. You have to be super human to swim 14hrs in those temperatures, people die or suffer hypothermia.

....next time without the water wings, eh?
