Charley and The Old Speedo's

Thursday, 15 August 2013

On the 1st August, the British relay team Charley and The Old Speedo's (6 person) began their Channel venture. Their pilot was Eric Hartley and observer Keith Oiller. After 12hrs and 15mins (subject to verification) they successfully reached France. Well done guys.....

To add to this dad jonathon did a solo channel swim in 2010 in 15hrs 27mins. Daughter Charley was on the boat with dad and said that she wanted to do a Channel swim. 3 years later at the age of 12 years and 16 days she accomplished her goal! She really swam well for her 2 legs and during her second leg it was recorded to be 12 kt SE (head) wind with 2 ft waves with occassional breaking crests. Quite an achievement for a 12 year old! Well done Charley and team!
