“Swimming a tough stretch of water still has an enjoyable maverick feel about it

Overveiw

Probably my preferred discipline but I still wouldn’t class myself as a good swimmer. My challenges have taken me to Switzerland, Lake District ,Channel Islands ,Turkey ,Spain to Morocco ,Sardinia, Israel , America and across to France. The plan will always be to try a swim that excites - where ever that is around the World.

Swimming a tough stretch of water still has an enjoyable maverick feel about it.
