Delighted to confirm that, on 6/7 October 2013, this Wild Highlander successfully swam the English Channel in 19hrs 27mins. An amazing experience as part of an amazing team. Huge thanks to my pilot Neil Streeter, co-pilot Sam Jones, swim support team Kate Robarts and Ruth Beaver, and CS&PF observer John Thorpe. Never to be forgotton.
It already seems like a rather lovely dream although definitely one that will be with me forever. I hope to update this blog sometime before the end of 2013 with a full report on my swim and on my adventures as a ‘Hippy Chick’ while waiting for a weather window.
I am still raising money for Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland. Please consider donating to the charity in support of my efforts. Thank you to everyone who has already donated, you are amazing people. http://www.justgiving.com/Helen-Beveridge-EC-Solo-Swim
