Story

Team H2 OH! Ziggy (AKA Selene) Gerry, Lindsay, Pete & Rachael -
Will be swimming in a relay across the English Channel to raise money for our nominated charity, 'Swim Torquay', Plainmoor Community Swimming Pool, Torquay.

'Swim Torquay' or Plainmoor Community Swimming Pool as it is also known, was built in the 1970s, it is a Charity run pool with dedicated & friendly Lifeguards & the manager Marcus is passionate about swimming being made available to all. The pool caters for a huge variety of swimmers & learners - from one to one swimming lessons for all ages & abilities, Clubs, Mobility, Baby/Toddlers Groups, Schools, Triathlon Swim Coaching, Lifeguard Training, Swim Parties, Aqua Fit....
Many people learnt to swim here, as a charity pool it constantly needs funding to stay open & continue to offer a safe environment for all to swim & have fun. Swimming is a great form of exercise, being non-weight bearing it is great for those with joint issues, it also uses large groups of muscles, so a brilliant way to stay fit too!

The Channel Swim - 2018
WHEN - sometime between the 18th to 25th August 2018 (depending on weather & tide)

HOW FAR - The Channel is 21 miles at its shortest point, however we will swim much further as the current will move us many miles off course as the tide ebbs and flows.

HOW LONG - between 18 to 25 hours! (if not more!!)
The Louisa Jane will be escorting us safely across the Channel as there could be at least 200 other vessels as well as up to 600 tankers, marine creatures & debris! We are hoping to Find Nemo, France & ‘put pebbles down our pants!’.

Sea temperatures could be between 12-18 Celsius during the day, dropping lower during the night, once we set off from Dover, we will be non-stop swimming until we reach France, which will mean taking our turn swimming in the inky blue sea during the night – scary! We do not want to find Moby Dick or Jaws!

Please sponsor us and help speed our journey across the English Channel.

    Update from the Page owner

    YAY! Thank You..... on the 18th of August we'll be travelling to Dover getting ready for our Channel Relay Swim. All money raised will go to 'Swim Torquay' - Plainmoor Swimming Pool, a great local charity that has helped hundreds of people to learn to swim over the years. Being near the sea it is essential that people are confident in water, the best way to do this is to learn to swim in a pool with life guards. Swimming Lessons are a great investment for anyone at any time in their life. Swimming is fun for all & a great form of exercise too!
