Uswims ’Dover Souls’  Channel Success

Uswims ’Dover Souls’ Channel Success

30 August 2015

Nothing would, nothing could stop this gutsy team from completing one of the Worlds most iconic open water swims - The English Channel. Over 21miles of swimming in the busiest shipping lane, in temperatures of 17degrees in skins. 14hours, 8mins after the swim start Karen 'Special K' Smith scrambled onto Wissant Beach in France in the pitch dark stormy night. An exceptional swim by an exceptional team. Phil Hoyland, Achille Ramambason, Karen Smith, Sue Haines, Amy Peters and Neil Marsh. Names that can now stand proudly alongside Captain Webb, the first person to swim 'La Manche' in 1875.
