Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I've never done open water swimming before and its been over 30 years since I trained and swam competitively. I started swimming again in October 2013 and decided to start training for the Solent swim. I've been training properly since January and have completed a 5km endurance swim in 89 minutes in the pool and have been training in Sandown bay since Early April. The Solent swim is a big challenge that, weather permitting, I'm aiming to complete in a similar time to a pool swim or less. Aside from the small matter of the 5km distance from the Isle of Wight to Portsmouth, you have to contend with a busy shipping lane, Ferry's, Hovercraft, the Weather and the tide.
I'll update my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rjbulmer as I get nearer to the event and if you could sponsor me for this good cause it would be very much appreciated and gratefully received by those that need your support.
