Glen Conquers the Channel

21 July 2018

Glen set off from Abbot’s Cliff Beach, Dover in the early hours of this morning and swam continuously for 12 hours 55 minutes before reaching Wissant on the northern coast of France.

He only had one small mishap while swimming which was when his swimming cap split open a few hours into his swim. He had to swap it for a new one, without touching the boat or any of his support crew but in his words "there was a Formula One-style changeover and all good!"

His support crew say he was in good spirits throughout and with no wind and calm seas it was a "beautiful day for a swim" with everything looking good from the off.
