Congratulations to Alli (US/Italian) who completed her English Channel solo swim yesterday (28th August) after 11hrs and 14mins (subject to verification). Her pilot was Fred Mardle on Masterpiece. Alli commented:

'Today, i became a CHANNEL SWIMMER. Touching down at Cap-Gris-Nez in 11hrs and 14mins. I also became the FIRST ITALIAN WOMAN to achieve this goal'. Read her touching personal story on her own website:

Well done to Alli from all at the CSA......
