The Swim – 7 Hours

June 30, 2009

Latest update from Jane :

Hour 5 and just about 1/4 milr from crossing into french territory which means almost half way!! Swimmer is feeling strong, the nice sunshine is helping to keep us all warm.


However I did get an update later on to say that they have hit some fog and a bit of choppy water. Michelle is still going strong , but the humour is definalty fading. So messages of support form all her friens would really be appriciated 🙂

I will try and get update on whose been sea sick out of the boat crew if I can 🙂

    Tell Michelle:

    I wanted to sleep through my morning yoga class — but couldn’t because I knew you were out there swimming away!! 🙂 🙂 You’re my inspiration! xo, Courtney

    Dear Michelle and crew.

    We have been watching via the blog since the early hours. Couldn’t get the comments to work until now…

    We are there with you, the sun is up (a rare thing here in the UK) and everyone is shining a sunny smile towards you to keep you warm and happy.

    Hopefully this will be a bit of humor for you.

    Q. Why wasn’t Susan afraid when she saw a shark while she was swimming in the water?

    A. Because it was a man-eating shark!

    Keep it going. I (and a bunch of my co-workers) are watching the site and rooting for you!

    Hi Michelle,
    Keep up the good work. We are all pulling for you.

    P.S. Thank goodness the channel is cool for those long open water swims. Can you imagine what it would be like if the boat had to haul a hose of cold water all the way across the channel, and back? 🙂

    Two jokes for the little girl in Faribo who used to hold her breath. . .

    What is pink and fluffy?
    Pink fluff.

    What is blue and fluffy?

    Breathe deep and paddle strong Michelle! Will says kick hard, be strong!
