Finally there is a break in the weather. Lisa from Blackrock started her 2-way at 10:35am yesterday and is now well over half way back to England. Sylvain from Alsace/Cork started his swim at around 11am today and I am scheduled to go TONIGHT at around midnight. We are now 99.9% sure that this is it, for real!
There are plenty of ways of keeping up with the swim. You can call (or text) the boat on +353 87 2278242, this is my number but Dave will answer. You can keep an eye on my Twitter page www.twitter.com/owensbigswim where there will be very regular updates. By going to www.ais-doverstraits.co.uk and clicking on Sea Satin, you can track the boats progress across the Channel. It's amazing the technology involved in Channel swimming now... You can leave comments on facebook, twitter or by text if you want.
Don't forget that all this is in aid of the Irish Cancer Society and you can sponsor me at www.mycharity.ie/event/ec4cancer Thank You...!
