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 1st-5th of October 2018 (depending on weather & tide) Darker & Colder.

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 10 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.

    Team H2 Oh! completed their English Channel Crossing! Pitch black sea *TICK* Big Swell & Waves *TICK* Lots of Vomit *TICK*TICK *TICK* (Luckily this wasn't a team activity, Ziggy completed this on her own!) There were a few hiccups along the way, some very choppy conditions, we went off track at times due to strong currents & as we were not in the Neap Tide we had hoped for; our swim was brought forward a few days as the week ahead look unsettled, we were keen to go! It was definitely a Channel Swim Adventure!

    This is fabulous.... Thank You to everyone who has donated so far. Luckily there's another 5 weeks before we're off again, if you've not heard, the windy weather stopped our channel swim in August, but we're booked to return between October 1st - 5th (we are slot 3, so fingers crossed for Oct 3rd) So if you kept meaning to donate... it's not too late!! It would be great to smash our target!
