A BIG Thank you for all your support and interest this past summer, all is well and I'm ready for the...
... Final swim of the 2013 summer season...
The English Channel water (harbor) feels great, either I've acclimated for the temperature through my training or the few extra pounds of insulation I've put on is helping to keep me warm, I think it's a bit of both, and we are in the late season when the temps are the highest around 63 degrees F (17C).
I am hoping to make this a multiple crossing but everything is variable, with the weather, just keep watching the tracker.
Friend and crew member, Scott Lautman will periodically post updates (if possible) on my page and his page.
Mid-day tomorrow, Wednesday August 28th we will start our aqua-adventure.
We meet our pilot Mike Oram at 12:00 noon (GMT) and I should be starting my swim around
1 pm (GMT)

There are 3 ways to follow me through out the day and hopefully the night.
