Sink or Swim
Nutter Seriously you will find a lot of experience and help in here, we have had a few successes and attempts at the crossing
Good lick ! (as they say on the continent)
Must admit after reading this I have just spent 15 minutes looking at it and thinking what a challenge it would be! Then I saw the cost!!!
All the best for it though mate... A really tough challenge in my opinion though... one worth of respect!
It's an expensive outing - 2400 squids for the pilot and boat, plus association membership, plus your qualifying swim, doctor's certificate, hotel costs for a week plus, 'cos the pilot gives you a week's "window" and you have to be there at Dover waiting for him to call and tell you what day/time to be ready for the off. And it's possible the weather will prevent your swim. Sure I've forgotten something..........
You forgot travel insurance that covers open water swimming IW.
I'm happy with the idea of a relay but the idea of doing it all myself is just a pipe dream, I know my limits but go for it, why not.
No idea where you are but there's some of us will be swimming the south coastline for training next year come and join us if you're close enough.
In some respects it is like ironman as you need the PMA to believe you can do it.
Seren, do you have any more info about people swimming in Bournemouth? I need to carry on my cold water acclimatising but I obviously can't do that in the sea alone.
Eton 10k - can be wetsuitless
The Dart was a sell out last year.
We booked a holiday down there and was searching for a 10k run to do and that popped out - looked great and would have entered if it wasn't full.
