I was joined by my first guest swimmer today!

Chris Coleman (pictured above), who is deputy head of Taunton School, is a Channel relay swimmer and has championed open water swimming with his pupils.

We are hoping some of the pupils might join us further into the journey.


There was another sunfish sighting today, while some dolphins came right up to our boat's hull.

For now, we are continuing with a strategy of one swim a day.
