[edit] English Channel Impressions

Massive thanks to Mike Oram and crew for their great work in landing me on the Cap Gris Nez. The sprint finish was like nothing I have ever experienced against that crazy tide. And the feeling of relief at standing on rocks will never leave me just like the nice scar I'll have on my leg form the barnacles. What an awesome and overwhelming feeling yesterday was. Huge shout out to Freda, Barrie, Irene, Michelle and the rest of the incredible beach crew who made the last 3 weekends in Dover waiting for the weather to open far more enjoyable and supportive! I was lucky enough to have Irene out there with me observing and supporting me on the actual swim.
