Update on the "other" swimming Richards. My big brother Dan (age 53) successfully completed the English Channel on 20 July 2010 in a fast 12 hours, 32 minutes. It was an absolutely stunning day in the Channel, sunny with not a ripple on the water.
We are now the only brothers and just 2nd set of siblings to have successfully complete both the English and Catalina Channels in a solo swim.
Bravo to Dan.
It looks like I have to start training for my future swims as my time coaching is now over for a while.
2011 looks like it will be a year of at least 1, if not 2, major long swims for me.
Peace and light to all.
