Swim is going to start just like Reg planned on Tuesday at 4:30am (8:30pm Monday PST, 10:30pm Monday CST, 11:30pm EST). This site will be updated as much as we possibly can during the swim. Please know that your messages will be forwarded back to the boat and passed along to me.
People have asked is it easier since I’ve been here before. I guess not really. Each swim is really different even if it is the same body of water. I have a healthy respect for the Channel and I know that this swim will be nothing like the last one. For this reason, it has me probably as nervous as the last time. The things that I’m not concerned about are my boat pilots, Reg and Ray and my crew. They are some of the best out there and I know they will do everything that they can to help me. For those who don’t know my pilots are Reg and Ray Brickell and the crew are Jane Barry, Cathy McElevey, Katie Schwarz and Jeff Rodgers.
Also for those using the www.marinetraffic.com/ais website, Reg’s AIS number is 2350 18274.
Thanks for coming along on another great adventure.Tags: Channel Swimming Association, English Channel Swim
