I spoke with Reg’s wife on Tuesday explaining how my crew would be arriving on Friday and we would love to have the opportunity to speak with Reg prior to the swim. She explained that he may be out fishing, but to call Thursday night to be sure.
Well, I called back tonight and sure enough he is headed out fishing tonight and into tomorrow. However, he did think that he would be back in town sometime around 6pm. He wants me to call him again at 3pm and he will see if he is going to be back in time to meet. My guess is that if the fishing is good, we won’t get to meet him tomorrow. I did get to ask about the swim day. It looks like it is going to be late Sunday or sometime on Monday. I mentioned the winds and he says that they should be dying down around that time. The weather has been beautiful, so it looks like this could be a early swim for me. All I can say is I’m ready to go.
I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on when the swim gets scheduled. Right now we need to all pray that I can drive up to London, pick up Jane and my parents and make it back to Dover without harming anyone.Tags: Boat Pilot, English Channel, English Channel Swim, Reg Brickell
