After my 2017 attempt being blown out, another year of training and waiting (you all have been so patient), and 2 weeks swimming around Dover Harbor, our swim day is here.
I have kept things relatively quiet, because many situations had to fall into place but we think the day is here to Test my LIMITS of endurance.
My pilot and friend, Mike Oram (Ajort)
has worked hours plotting our course and if all goes well we will finish on the shores of Belgium, approximately 10 miles north of Dunkirk, France.
My supportive crew of Janet Galya (Amir), Scott Lautman (Aquaman) and Jane Murphy (Mamarita)
will feed, entertain and watch over me for the possible 30+ hours (in the water).
The plan is in place,
Saturday, September 1, 2018, around 5 am (GMT)... midnight East coast USA.
We have FindMeSPOT tracker...

Many of you already know, I try to swim for a charity but with so many sad things happening around the world, I'll give you a few suggestions but if you have a special foundation you are helping, just give a little extra in our honor.
Our favorites: I wish there was a site for 'Peace on Earth' but in the meantime...
- world-wide the Red Cross https://www.icrc.org or your local Red Cross Center
- a local homeless center in your area
- your local YMCA or Town Recreation department -to support swim lessons for all... helping to prevent needless drownings
Thank you for all your interest and support and I'll be reporting soon, hopefully a success story.
