The Next Challenge - Oceans 7 Challenge
Having conquered the English Channel in 2019, I decided why stop! There is still so much we can all do to help contribute to cancer research in order to find a cure for all types of Cancer. So a new dream was born, and I said to myself – “one down, six more to go!” I am now on a quest to conquer the Seven Seas! More precisely, I’m taking up the Oceans 7 Challenge.
It's a marathon swimming challenge consisting of seven open water channel swims. It includes the English Channel, the Molokai Channel, the Catalina Channel, the North Channel, the Tsugaru Strait, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Cook Strait.
This leg of the challenge is going to be tough, but with your belief and support, I will see it through!
Why Stop There
And whilst we are at it - Why stop there! Team Eade are also going back to Dover, United Kingdom. This time, not to swim the English Channel once, but THREE TIMES! I plan to establish the World Record of the oldest person to swim the English Channel 3 ways in a row. The boat is booked. The crew are summonsed. Watch this space! We are still hoping for October 2021 at this stage.
Thanks to all who have been part of this journey so far. Unfortunately for all of us, COVID-19 has interrupted all 2020 plans, but I am training, and we will let you know when new swim dates are locked in.
Stay tuned to my blog for more updates!
