“Because I have to endure the 10-12 hour swim on Wednesday 24th August, I thought I would take all of you along for the ride (swim). Admittedly, you won’t get to eat the gels, jelly & fruit, honey sandwiches and drink the cans of diet coke along the way but you can all follow my progress.” - Louise Stevenson
