Swim the Channel!

When we set this challenge for Sport Relief it was hard to decide what distance would be realistic for us to cover. We decided on the Channel and back, by the shortest route, a total distance of 42 miles. We thought with a really big effort and with us teachers joining in we could hopefully manage it. We hadn't banked on just how far all the widths add up to and have now covered an amazing 41.5 miles with 2 days still to go! So as we head off out across the channel again tomorrow let's see how far we can go by Friday?

Wow, what am amazing effort from all our swimmers tonight! Starting with the younger swimmers who all enjoyed swimming to France and back particularly going on the train through the channel tunnel (it helps to have a good imagination!) It is amazing how even widths across the pool can add up when everyone gets counted together. So we have covered 30 miles and find ourselves half the way back to England already and it's only Tuesday! At this rate the teachers won't have any swimming left for Friday.

What an amazing start! Thanks to all our swimmers, young and old and contributions from our teachers, we have already covered 10 miles and are nearly half way to France! We have also already raised £100 towards our target of £500. Good luck to all our Tuesday swimmers who should easily get us to France! Keep checking back for updates as the week progresses!
