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!
